How to watch Game 5:What to know for Guardians vs Yankees in Game 5 of the AL Division Series
New York ended the regular season with a 99-63 to win the powerful AL East. Thanks to a September surge, Cleveland finished 92-70 to win the AL Central.
The pitching matchup is a rematch from Game 1 of the series, as Cal Quantrill gets the ball for the Guardians against Yankees ace Gerrit Cole.
Follow along throughout the night for the latest updates on the game:
Guardians fall to Yankees 4-2
Bottom 9th: The Guardians weren't able to get anything going against Clay Holmes and Wandy Peralta in the eighth and ninth innings, respectively. There will be a Game 5.
Bottom 7th: Gerrit Cole is through the seventh inning, which was ended via a strikeout of pinch-hitter Will Brennan. Cole's 110th pitch of the night was clocked at 97 mph.
The Guardians have six outs to avoid having to go to New York for a decisive Game 5.
Yankees add on to lead, now 4-2
Top 6th: Cal Quantrill's night is done, and the Yankees added on to their lead against Eli Morgan, as Giancarlo Stanton brought a run home via a sacrifice fly to deep left-center field.
Top 5th: Cal Quantrill and the Guardians remain only down a run thanks to Jose Ramirez and the Cleveland infield. With two on and one out, Gleyber Torres ripped a ball to the left side. Ramirez made a diving stop, made the throw to second and the Guardians converted the double play to end the inning. Quantrill was fired up, screaming as he walked off the mound.
Josh Naylor hits solo home run, Yankees lead cut to 3-2
Bottom 4th: Josh Naylor, hobbled by an ankle injury and in the designated hitter spot, drilled a solo home run off Gerrit Cole that cuts the Yankees lead to 3-2. Naylor is fired up, egging on the crowd after he touched home plate. The Guardians continue to chip away.
Jose Ramirez drives in a run but makes base running blunder
Bottom 3rd: Jose Ramirez cut the Yankees' lead to 3-1 with a bloop single to left field, but he was also caught too far off first base as he rounded toward second, and he was tagged out to end the inning. The Guardians would have had runners at the corners. Instead, the scoring threat is gone with the Yankees still up 3-1.
Harrison Bader puts Yankees up 3-0
Top 2nd: The Yankees are jumping all over Cal Quantrill. In the top of the second, Harrison Bader drilled a two-run home run to the bleacher seats in left field, putting the Yankees up 3-0. And with Gerrit Cole on the mound, that's already a tall order for the Guardians.
Yankees take early 1-0 lead
Top 1st: The Yankees took an early lead utilizing the Guardians' style of offense. Gleyber Torres opened the game with a single, stole second and came around to score on Anthony Rizzo's single up the middle. Myles Straw's throw from center might have beaten Torres to the plate had it not hit off the mound, which changed its course.
