Joe Maddon has no regrets about Game 1 moves — He understood he had left himself open to a couple of second guesses. He was good with that, too. Game Date Time (air time/game time) Matchup TV Gm 1 Oct. 25 CLE 6, CHC 0 Instead, he tipped his cap to the Indians, who beat the Cubs, , in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday night at Progressive Field.

Terry Francona succeeds by supporting players — CLEVELAND -- Josh Tomlin had just been demoted from the Cleveland Indians starting rotation when he found himself in a place some might consider odd. He was sitting across from the man who had just delivered the bad news. He and Indians manager Terry Francona were playing cribbage.

Redskins' Offense Hits Wall in 7-7 Tie — Redskins' Offense Hits Wall in 7-7 Tie By Richard Justice Washington Post Staff Writer Monday, November 24, 1997; Page D1 The Washington Redskins saw the lights on their playoff hopes grow dimmer last night as a combination of misplays and sometimes bizarre mistakes forced them to settle for a 7-7 tie with the New York Giants in front of 75,703 at Jack Kent Cooke Stadium.

Aroldis Chapman, Andrew Miller in World Series — When Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Miller took off the Yankees pinstripes and said their goodbyes to one another last summer, they knew this kind of reunion was a possibility. Yes, trades sometimes work out exactly the way they're drawn up, and this World Series is a reminder of that.

Blue Jays lose, but Toronto baseball winning — TORONTO -- They had not done what they believed they would do. They believed it until the very end. That's the thing the Toronto Blue Jays said over and over. "I wanted to be getting on a plane to go to Cleveland," outfielder Jose Bautista said.

Blue Jays' Mark Shapiro congratulates Indians — TORONTO -- Mark Shapiro choked back tears as he searched for words. He wanted to say this just right, and he didn't want anyone to misconstrue his swirl of emotions. Shapiro had just come from the visitors' clubhouse at Rogers Centre, where some of his closest friends were celebrating the Cleveland Indians winning the American League pennant.

Blue Jays look like old selves, have hope — TORONTO -- This is what great players do, and Josh Donaldson certainly is one of those. This is what really good teams do, and the Toronto Blue Jays are that. The Blue Jays do not go quietly. They do not give in. Toronto certainly did not give up.

Blue Jays confident they can rally in ALCS — TORONTO -- Opportunities? Yes, the Blue Jays have had a few. That's the thing that still gives them hope. "We don't have any choice," catcher Russell Martin said. "We either win or go home, and I don't want to go home. I don't think anyone in this clubhouse wants to go home."

Terry Francona not celebrating 3-0 ALCS lead — TORONTO -- Don't even think of telling Indians manager Terry Francona that this thing is over. Don't imply it. Don't think it. Don't breathe it. He's one of the few men on the planet who can look across the diamond at the Toronto Blue Jays and understand they still have hope.

Jose Bautista takes focus off Toronto offense — TORONTO -- Jose Bautista may have done the smartest thing any of the Toronto Blue Jays could do at this point. On Sunday afternoon, he walked to the middle of the home clubhouse at Rogers Centre, leaned against a table and waited for reporters to gather around him.
