Cleveland rocks! The Indians crushed the Toronto Blue Jays 3-0 in game five of the ALCS and are headed to the World Series. Keep reading for all the details from the amazing baseball playoff series and how the Tribe won the American League Pennant!
Simply incredible. The Cleveland Indians were too strong for the mighty Toronto Blue Jays to handle Oct. 19 and have won the ALCS. The Tribe will be headed to the World Series to face the winner of the National League Championship Series which will be either the Chicago Cubs or the Los Angeles Dodgers. If the Indians can continue to roll through the World Series, and they earn another title to go next to the Cavaliers Championship, Cleveland’s new name just might be Title Town!
So how did the Indians get the job done? Solid pitching, strong bats, and error-free fielding, that’s how! Game four featured Cleveland’s stud right-hander Corey Kluber on the mound just working over the Blue Jays lineup and game five featured Ryan Merritt doing work for the Indians. Corey was lights-out all postseason giving up nothing to struggling opposing American League sluggers while Ryan helped the Indians get to the playoffs and now the World Series, well done boys!
The Indians have been straight rolling through the postseason and barely lost a game. Prior to facing the Blue Jays, the Tribe swept the Boston Red Sox in the ALDS. The Indians will look to continue their winning ways and will have the home field advantage in the World Series as the AL won the All-Star Game. Good luck to whichever NL team they face!
