Joe Girardi: "I screwed up" by not challenging HBP call

In what surprised nearly every fan of baseball, the New York Yankees slammed Corey Kluber the ace of the Cleveland Indians pitching staff for six runs over just 2 2/3 innings during Game 2 Friday night of the American League Division Series.
"II'll have the whole off-season to think about what I'll do moving forward", Tanaka said through a translator.
Yankees pitchers will be throwing to catcher Gary Sanchez, whose defense has been criticized this year, but managerJoe Girardi is happy with the progress Sanchez has made behind the plate.
Both Aaron Hicks and Gary Sanchez homered off Kluber, and NY entered the six inning leading 8-3, when the wheels came off. Girardi often utilizes his challenges during the regular season (and well; this season, the Yankees were successful on 29 of their 41 challenges, the best percentage in baseball), and in a game like this, when your team's back is to the wall, he chose not to. If it does, Kluber could also pitch in Game 5. They never really threatened, save for getting a runner to second base to begin the 11th - who was promptly picked off. "Usually, we give CC somewhere around 90 pitches".
The ball hit the bat and was caught by Sanchez which would have made three outs and the inning over with the Indians stranding a pair of runners and the Yankees leading 8-3.
Asked if he was surprised by Sabathia's late-career surge, Francona said: "Not at all". But if they want me to start, I'll be ready for that, too. In 2017, he led the AL or was tied for the league lead in wins, complete games (five), shutouts (three), ERA, WHIP (0.87), hits per nine innings (6.23), walks per nine innings (1.59) and strikeout-to-walk ratio (7.36). Sabathia was only at 77 pitches, he wasn't falling apart, and the Yankees had a five-run lead. "I'm excited for him because past year he missed out". It appears the Yankees are going with Aaron Hicks over Jacoby Ellsbury in center field as he has started the last two postseason games.
"I screwed up", the besieged Yankees manager said Saturday afternoon.
