2 home runs from Didi Gregorius in the first 3 innings of game 5 helped propel the New York Yankees to a 5-2 win over the Indians after being down 2 games in the series. The loss marks the first time in history a team has blown a 2 game lead in consecutive postseaons. Poor pitching from Cleveland’s Corey Kluber and no hits from all-star players Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez contributed to the loss for a team reeling from poor play in the previous 2 games that included seven errors and 6 unearned runs. “It means a lot, that’s one of the big moment of my career, (to) come up big right there with two home runs,” Didi Gregorius told The Bergen Record. Cleveland entered the series coming off a 102 win season following their loss in game 7 of the 2016 World Series. The wildcard Yankees now head to Houston to take on the Astros for the pennant tomorrow night. Our coverage of game 1 of the ALCS starts at 7:25 right here on 640 The Hurricane.
