Indians season comes to an end with ALDS loss to Yankees; three takeaways

CLEVELAND– That’s all she wrote.

The Cleveland Indians lost in Game 5 of the ALDS to the New York Yankees, 5-2, ending their 2017 season.

Wednesday night’s contest was their sixth straight series-clinching loss, going back to last year’s World Series against the Chicago Cubs.

It’s basically impossible to digest this season tonight, but perhaps manager Terry Francona said it best in his postgame presser.

“Nobody wanted the season to be over,” he said. “It doesn’t wind down, it comes to a crashing halt. It’s disappointing. We felt good about ourselves. We made it harder to win, especially in the last two games.”

Here are our three takeaways from Game 5.
