Do-Or-Die Time For Indians and Yankees

After splitting the first four games of the ALDS, the Cleveland Indians and New York Yankees will take to Progressive Field for Game 5 with the series on the line. The home team has won the first four games of the series while outscoring the visitors 21-11. Will home-field advantage reign supreme for the Indians or can the Yankees pull off the upset?

Shark Bites
  • The favored team has won every game in this series.
  • The total has gone OVER in 11 of the Yankees’ last 14 games on the road.
  • The Yankees and Indians did not use Aroldis Chapman or Andrew Miller in Game 4.

CC Sabathia, who will be taking the bump for the second time this series, pitched 5.1 innings while giving up three hits and two earned runs in Game 2. The big lefty has been a steady presence for the Yankees, as he has given up two or fewer earned runs in seven of his past nine starts. Sabathia also has the luxury of facing an Indians squad that has gone just 9-for-61 with 25 strikeouts in Games 3 and 4.

Indians ace Corey Kluber will get the start in this do-or-die situation. The AL Cy Young candidate suffered his worst outing of the season in Game 2 of the ALDS, allowing seven hits and six earned runs in just 2.2 innings of work. The last time Kluber failed to make it through three innings came back on May 9, 2016. That being said, he has been lights out at Progressive Field during the regular season with a 1.81 ERA in Cleveland.
