Toronto, Ontario - Trevor Bauer went through 21 pitches and a lot of blood before his night ended early in Game 3 of the ALCS. He was forced out after his gash from a drone on his pinkie finger reopened in the first inning.
Bauer was obviously emotional as he walked off the mound.
"Yeah man, I'm a competitor", Bauer said after Game 3. "I want to be out there. I wouldn't have gone out there if I didn't want to be out there. It was my turn to pitch and I wanted to go deep in the ballgame. It wasn't fun to come out."
The Indians had a plan, and that plan was to roll through six relievers to get the job done.
They were successful once again, and with the 4-2 win now stand one win away from completing the sweep and heading to the World Series. The Indians play Toronto again Tuesday at 4:04 p.m. in Canada.
