MRI of Travis's right knee reveals bone bruise, caught flap of cartilage

OCT 15 2016 Fans cheer as Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Josh Tomlin exits the game against the Toronto Blue Jays and the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field in Cleveland OH. Cleveland defeated Toronto 2-1

Tomlin originally was scheduled to pitch Game 3, but he was pushed up after Bauer cut his right pinkie while repairing one of the drones he enjoys flying as a hobby.

The Jays are 0-2 in the seven game series after scoring just one run during the first two away games. "I think that's baseball, sometimes you go in spurts", he said. "The key is you have to have the lead, so maybe (Indians manager Terry Francona will) wait a little longer to go to him". Cleveland has two wins and has yet to have two hits in a single inning. "It wasn't remotely malicious". He needed 11 stitches to close the wound. His control was all over the place even before he cut himself while engaging in his hobby of drone fix on Friday night.

"He's doing stuff that nobody's done before", Bauer said.

"I plugged it in, like I've done thousands and thousands of times. I don't think that's a pre-showing of what's going to happen [Monday night]". "And I went four innings, threw a bullpen after and still felt like I could keep going". The Indians have kept winning anyway.

Except, that is, for Merritt, who would be making his first game appearance in almost three weeks. He is hitting eighth Monday. Part of the reason for the lack of offence has been Andrew Miller, Cleveland's dominant reliever who's been virtually unhittable. "It hasn't been many".

Toronto starter J.A. Happ, a 20-game victor during the regular season, pitched five innings and gave up both Cleveland runs.

European Mothership Stopped Sending Signal; Scares Mission Control Momentarily

Thailand names a temporary regent while nation mourns

How US Forces Are Assisting in the Battle for Mosul
Saud Masoud, a soldier with Iraq's special forces watched the frontline on the horizon Monday while waiting for orders to advance. It's expected to be a hard fight for Iraq's security forces, which suffered a rapid and humiliating defeat there two years ago .

Miller, who struck out five in 1 2/3 innings Friday, added five more to become the first pitcher in post-season history to strike out at least five on consecutive days.

Say this about John Gibbons: If something stinks, the Blue Jays manager isn't going to alter the description of the scent. He's got an overpowering fastball.

Bautista said Miller now seems to be throwing his slider a couple different ways, and the 6-foot-7 left-hander didn't dispute that. "I wouldn't compare it to anybody else because he's so different". "Whenever you get to come in behind a guy like that, you're in a pretty good spot". We know how to come back. A lot of similarities, but they've been able to plate the runs.

Blue Jays fans agreed it was time to change the name. If necessary, Game 5 will also be played in Toronto under the 2-3-2 LCS format. He has struck out 10 of the 12 Jays he has faced in the series. He aggravated a right knee injury in Game 1, and an MRI showed a bone bruise with a small flap of cartilage caught in the joint. He will likely need surgery but is expected to be ready for spring training next season.

He was called upon to start the deciding Game 5 of last year's AL division series against the Texas Rangers, a 6-3 win punctuated by Jose Bautista's emphatic bat flip that sent Toronto into the ALCS against Kansas City.
