The NY Yankees defeated the Cleveland Guardians in Game 4 of the American League Division Series to even the series 2-2, and force a decisive fifth game as the series heads back to New York.
The Yankees pulled off the 4-2 win over Cleveland, with the Guardians losing their chance to clinch the series by leaving four runners on base on six hits. Yankees ace Gerrit Cole pitched 7.0 innings and only allowed two runs, striking out eight Guardian batters. Relievers Clay Holmes and Wandy Peralta came in to shut down the Guardians’ offense in the eighth and ninth innings.
New York will start Game 2 pitcher Jameson Taillon against Cleveland’s Aaron Civale on Monday night at Yankee Stadium. The winner advances to meet Houston in the AL Championship Series.
