Didi Gregorius Leads Yankees to Game 5 Win vs. Indians; Will Face Astros in ALCS

The New York Yankees became the 10th team in Major League Baseball history to erase a 0-2 series deficit in a best-of-five format with a 5-2 win over the Cleveland Indians in Game 5 of the American League Division Series on Wednesday at Progressive Field in Cleveland. 

Shortstop Didi Gregorius—who had one hit in the series' first four gamesspearheaded the Bronx Bombers' victorious effort with a pair of home runs off Indians starter Corey Kluber, including a two-run crush job in the third inning.
