The bottom of the sixth inning may or may not should have been over, but Francisco Lindor doesn’t care much. The Cleveland Indians’ MVP candidate launched a grand slam and has put the Tribe firmly back into Game 2 of the ALCS against the New York Yankees, pulling within a run.

It was the Yankees showcasing their power early to take the lead, with Lindor answering in enormously clutch fashion. His blast nearly sent Cleveland into pandemonium, with the window still open to get ahead 2-0 in the series.
For what it’s worth, the inning probably should have been over had the Yankees challenged this call:
This is the "hit by pitch" that the Yankees didn't review. It would have been strike three, and the inning would have been over. pic.twitter.com/YU8EnVCeL9
