Never say die, that is what this 2017 Cleveland Indians team lives by. They came from behind in 13 innings to beat the New York Yankees in game-2 of the ALDS. It was a fantastic comeback many would have called improbable.

Those that would have said that, haven't paid much attention to this team, this season. Nothing seems to be improbable, for this group of players. The Tribe trailed by as much as 5 runs after 5 innings.

But then the 6th inning came into play and just like that with one swing of the bat by the Indians star shortstop Francisco Lindor the Indians put 4 more runs on the score-board and it was back to being a 1-run game.

Lindor has been a star since he arrive in Cleveland. To hit a grand slam under those conditions shows you what this kid is made out of. He plays well beyond his years.

In the 8th inning, it would be Jay Bruce who would hit a home run to tie the game. Just like that it was all even at 8, and I knew this Cleveland Indians team would find a way to win this ballgame.

It became a battle of the Indians bull-pen from this point on. The game would go 13 innings. Terry Francona would have Josh Tomlin pitch and this guy has been in tough positions before and he can handle the heat.

But it would be the guy that catches those pitches from the Tribe's staff that would be the hero in this game. In the bottom of the 13th inning, the Yankees walked Jackson and then he stole second. Gomes hits a single to left field and Jackson scored, it was another walk-off win for the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field this year. Unbelievable stuff folks.

But then again this team makes the unbelievable look easy. Go Tribe......
