If you turned Game 2 off early, you may think this series is 1-1 heading into New York.
If you are one of those people, you missed one heck of a finish. The Yankees will try to avoid elimination here on Sunday night in Game 3 of the ALDS.
The Indians were a bit shell shocked themselves in Game 2.
Corey Kluber got rocked, allowing 6 runs and exited with New York up 6-3. Down 8-3 in the 6th, the tables started to turn and turn quickly.
Francisco Lindor dinged a Grand Slam off the foul pole and sent Progressive Field into a frenzy as the Indians cut the Yankees lead to just 1. Jay Bruce would eventually tie things up in the 8th inning, causing more havoc, as the offense turned it over to the bullpen to keep things at bay.
Thanks to stellar performances by almost everyone and a Yan Gomes pick off, the Indians set themselves up for a spectacular walk off in the 13th inning to cap one of the best comebacks in their postseason history.
With all the momentum, Carlos Carrasco will get the ball here.
Carrasco has been a road warrior thus far.
The Indians RH owns an 11-2 road record with an ERA of just 2.65.
New York Yankees
New York has to be scratching their heads.
Not being able to hold an 8-3 lead to steal home field advantage is the biggest back breaker and now they have to find a way to regroup and find their composure early on here.
Not that you can really find a positive from blowing the lead like that, but the Yankees offense at least had success against Kluber. They can try to take that and use it as any possible momentum heading into Game 3.
Masahiro Tanaka will get the ball to try and save the Yankees season here on Sunday.
Tanaka has been a solid home pitcher, which should provide us with a solid pitching matchup here. Tanaka is 9-5 inside Yankee Stadium this year, holding an ERA of 3.22.
The RH closed his season out with 7.0 scoreless innings against the Jays, a solid start to build off of here.
Tanaka does own a 4.74 ERA this season as he has had a lot of crooked numbers hung on him, something he simply cannot do here on Sunday.
