Tribe dump Blue Jays

Rookie Merritt delivers

The Cleveland Indians took matters into their own hands and delivered the knockout punch to the punch drunk Toronto Blue Jays and they did it with Rookie Ryan Merritt was the one delivering the blows.

“I know they were counting on me,” Merritt said. “Before the game, they came and told me they had my back, everybody had my back, good or bad. So that takes some pressure off, and I just went out there and pitched and trusted my team.”

The Tribe now await the winner of the NLCS between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago Cubs.  They could use the time recuperate for a few days, especially the pitching staff which have been hampered with injuries, especially Trevor Bauer who is still nursing an injured pinkie finger.
