Bauer leads Indians...Altuve's 3 solo shots lead Astros' rout of Bosox

CLEVELAND (AP) — There were more than a few raised eyebrows when Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona elected to start Trevor Bauer over Cy Young candidate Corey Kluber in Game 1 of their AL Division Series against the New York Yankees. Francona's strategy worked on Thursday as Bauer led the Indians to a 4-0 shutout of the Yanks.

Bauer was outstanding over 6 2/3 innings, holding New York to a pair of hits and one walk while striking out eight. He had a no-hitter until Aaron Hicks lined a one-out double in the sixth.

Bauer was lifted right after Starlin Castro singled in the seventh.

Jay Bruce sparked Cleveland's offense, scoring the first run on a double-play grounder and slamming a two-run homer. He added a sacrifice fly that put the Indians ahead 4-0 in the fifth.

Yankees starter and loser Sonny Gray was pulled after 3 ½ innings, charged with three runs on three hits and four walks.

The series remains in Cleveland for Game 2 on Friday.

HOUSTON (AP) — The American League's reigning batting champion showcased his power in leading the Astros to a rout of the Red Sox in Game 1 of their division series.

Jose Altuve banged out three solo shots to support Justin Verlander as Houston rolled to an 8-2 win over Boston at Minute Maid Park. The 5-foot-6 Altuve went deep twice against Red Sox starter Chris Sale and became the ninth player in postseason history to homer three times in a game when he sent an Austin Maddox pitch over the wall in the seventh inning.

Altuve is the first player to homer three times in a postseason game since Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval against the Tigers in the 2012 World Series. Babe Ruth did it twice.

Verlander picked up the win and remains unbeaten since the Astros acquired him from Detroit on Aug. 31. The right-hander was reached for two runs and six hits over six innings after going 6-0 with a 1.06 ERA for Houston in September.

Marwin Gonzalez broke a 2-2 tie with a two-run double in the fourth inning. Alex Bregman hit a solo homer and Brian McCann added a two-run single.

Most of the damage came against Sale, who gave up three homers and was tagged for seven runs and nine hits over five-plus innings.

Game 2 is Friday in Houston.
