Momentum belongs to the Yankees.
Didi Gregorius rocked a Corey Kluber pitch to right field for a solo home run in the first inning of Wednesday night’s Game 5 of the ALDS.
Kluber, the Indians ace who had struck out Aaron Judge and had two outs in the inning, looked stunned as Gregorius slugged a ball into the right field corner.
Cash getting paid?
New York sent CC Sabathia to the mound with a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first of the deciding Game 5.
The winner of this series will take on the Houston Astros in the ALCS.
