Bieber allowed seven runs across 4.2 innings Tuesday in a loss to the Yankees in Game 1 of the AL Wild Card Round. He allowed nine hits and two walks while striking out seven.
Bieber had not allowed more than three earned runs in any start during the regular season. The 25-year-old threw 62 of his 105 pitches for strikes but the Yankees were successful in driving up his pitch count, resulting in his shortest start in 2020. The right-hander's next chance at taking the mound would be if the Indians can advance to the AL Division Series.
