Trevor Bauer

Trevor Bauer had his baseball horror story Monday night. After needing ten stitches to repair a cut on his pinky suffered while repairing a drone, Bauer's ALCS start was pushed from Game 2 to Game 3. Before taking the mound in Toronto, Bauer insisted he was ready to go.

He wasn't. He needed to be taken out after two-thirds of an inning when his cut reopened and bled all over the field.


Bauer received a standing ovation from the Rogers Centre crowd, as Blue Jays fans thought they had the game in the books. Down 0-2 in the series, Toronto had Marcus Stroman on the hill with its monster lineup hitting against the Indians' bullpen for eight-plus innings.

But Cleveland persevered. The Indians tagged Stroman for four runs to win 4-2 and go up 3-0 in the series. Cleveland last won a pennant in 1997, but the franchise has not won a World Series since 1948.

After getting pulled from the game, Bauer turned into one of the Indians' loudest cheerleaders. He then joked on Twitter.





Bauer engaged with a handful of fans on Twitter late Monday night and Tuesday morning. Right now, the thinks he is on track for a return in the World Series.


Kids, if there is any takeaway from this, it's that you need to be careful when fixing your drone during the MLB Postseason.

Oh, also, obviously people made Curt Schilling-bloody sock references. Schilling wasn't about it.


The Indians will attempt to close out the Blue Jays Tuesday night in Toronto.
