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

Yankees

"I screwed up", the skipper told the media as the Yankees returned home in a 2-0 ALDS hole to the Indians.

Designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion suffered what the Indians say is a sprained right ankle on October 6 when he was injured in the bottom of the first inning of Game 2 of the ALDS with the Yankees trying to get back to second base to avoid a double play. But Encarnacion hasn't been ruled out despite using crutches and wearing a boot during a day off Saturday.

Instead of seizing momentum by tying the best-of-five series at one game apiece, the Yankees trail 2-0 heading into Game 3 Sunday night at the Stadium.

The Indians had feared a worse diagnosis. Fortunately, however, according to the Let's Go Tribe fan page, his Twitter feed continued to work so he sent a tweet to United asking for an update. All-Star left fielder Michael Brantley replaced him at DH on Friday and is expected to fill the role in Encarnacion's absence.

The on-field ruling was that Cleveland Indians outfielder Lonnie Chisenhall was hit by a pitch with two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning, which loaded the bases, and the next batter, Francisco Lindor, hit a grand slam off Yankees reliever Chad Green to cut the Yankees' lead from five runs to one.

The injury occurred in the first inning Friday night in a game Cleveland eventually won 9-8 in the 13th. He went down. He's one of our biggest players, but, again, like I said, nobody's going to feel sorry for us.

As Encarnacion headed back to the bag, he rolled his ankle. Encarnacion was doubled off on the play.

Encarnacion led the Indians with 38 home runs and 107 RBI in the regular season.

Still, the loss of Encarnacion, who signed a three-year contract worth $60 million in the offseason to replace Mike Napoli in the middle of the order, would be a significant one.
