Carig Poise power and another statement for the Yankees

After blowing a three-run lead in the seventh, the Yankees improved to 21-10 with a 6-5 victory.

To get to Game 5, the Yankees needed to win twice at home and they won a pair of elimination games at Yankee Stadium before celebrating in Cleveland. The Indians won the second game 13-4 after losing the first 13-11 to the Blue Jays in 11 innings, and they have now alternated wins and losses in their past six. NY also has won 12 of its last 13 games in the last two weeks since it was 9-9 following an 8-5 home loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.

Yankees veteran lefty CC Sabathia continued his incredible age-37 season with a dominant performance.

Sanchez is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against Cleveland.

Sabathia hurled six scoreless innings against the Yankees' 2017 American League Division Series opponents, his second start without giving up any runs in three outings. He's made seven for the season.

Sabathia is undefeated in his last 14 regular-season starts since August 19, posting an 8-0 mark.

Before Andujar's first career walk-off hit, NY rookie second baseman Gleyber Torres hit his first career homer when he hit a three-run shot in the fourth off Josh Tomlin.

Two batters later, Aaron Judge rocked a solo shot over over the wall down the left-field line, his eighth blast of the season.

Brett Gardner followed with a sacrifice fly to left to drive in Romine and make it 4-1, as the Yankees scored four times in the inning despite getting just one hit.

Plate umpire Tim Timmons ejected Cleveland first baseman Yonder Alonso before the bottom of the eighth.

After a back-and-forth battle on Friday, will the New York Yankees manage another win over the Cleveland Indians when the two meet up today at 1:10PM ET?

He dove awkwardly and was kicked in the head by Francisco Lindor's right cleat while making a putout at second base on a grounder by Jason Kipnis. Lindor slid headfirst. Gregorius dived at him.

Gregorius laid on his back for a couple minutes and the Yankees' trainer came out.

The teams will be meeting for the first time since October 11, when Didi Gregorius hit a pair of homers off Corey Kluber and Aroldis Chapman struck out four in two scoreless innings to secure a 5-2 victory.

Sunday: Yankees righty Domingo German (0-1, 3.77 ERA) vs. Indians righty Mike Clevinger (2-0, 2.56 ERA), 1:05 Yankee Stadium. The changeup got better as the game went on.
