Jose Ramirez took a moment to get his hair combed in the dugout during ALDS Game 3

Or maybe he was just trying to find a way to remain calm during the Indians' nailbiting 4-3 win over Boston. Thanks in part to Ramirez's stellar defensive work, Cleveland held on and advanced to the ALCS to meet the Blue Jays on Friday at 8 p.m. ET on TBS and Sportsnet.
