Andrew Miller on Frankie Lindor: 'He's a star'

DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

At the age of 22, Francisco Lindor plays the game of baseball like a kid on a sandlot -- flying around the bases, his sheer joy is obvious. But he produces like a veteran, and while he's been tested in these playoffs, he came through again in Game 1 of the ALCS.

In the bottom of the sixth, Frankie belted a Marco Estrada change-up into the October night for a two-run homer, the only two runs of the game.

"He's doing it with ease, the way he makes it look sometimes is pretty effortless," said Jason Kipnis after the game. "He stays ready, got that change-up up and put a fantastic swing on it, and like I said, that was the difference tonight."

Indians manager Terry Francona also had some high praise for his second-year shortstop.

"He's got a ton of talent," Francona said during the post-game presser. "I just think you can tell how much he enjoys playing the game. Shoot, if I had his ability I'd feel confident, too."

Indians reliever Andrew Miller, a difference-maker himself who struck out five of the six batters he retired in Game 1, summed it up this way: "He's a star."

Nobody in the Indians' clubhouse will argue that.
