The Cleveland Indians can’t lose — literally.
The Indians, who swept the Boston Red Sox in the American League Division Series, are up two games to none in the best-of-seven AL Championship Series, thanks to a 2-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday.
Cleveland took an early 1-0 lead on a Carlos Santana home run, and a Francisco Lindor RBI single in the third inning put the Indians up for good at Progressive Field.
However, the big story for Cleveland continues to be its pitching staff and bullpen. Josh Tomlin allowed only one earned run on three hits in 5 2/3 innings to pick up the win, and the combination of Bryan Shaw, Andrew Miller and Cody Allen closed out the game from there.
The series will shift to Toronto for Game 3 on Monday at 8 p.m. ET on TBS.
