The Yankees try to even up the ALDS in Cleveland.

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Last night, the Yankees got shut out in game one of the ALDS in Cleveland. It doesn't get any easier, as now they have to face off against Corey Kluber.

In two games this season, the Yankees combined for three runs in 17 total innings against Kluber. However, the first game was during a period where the Yankees were really struggling, and the second was during the Indians' super long win streak. Not to say those numbers are great news for the Yankees, but they have been playing better of later than they did in either earlier game against Kluber.

Meanwhile, the Yankees will give the start to CC Sabathia. Cleveland didn't face Sabathia in either regular season series this year.

The one real lineup change from yesterday is that Jacoby Ellsbury returns to the DH spot.

The game can be seen on MLB Network at 5:00 PM ET.
