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:

    Joe Girardi is the worst manager in baseball !!! CC should not have even been out to start the inning. He had done his job !! We had the best pitcher in the AL beat and we just let it slip away. And then not to even challenge this call ? Do we not have anyone in the booths or is he just that stupid ?? I guess we will head back to the Bronx 0-2.
