As quickly as it started, it could end. The Yankees seized control of Game One of the Wild Card Series in Cleveland within four pitches, eventually winning handily by a score of 12-3. They can end the series after just two games, and punch a ticket to next week’s ALDS well ahead of time.
Game Two will start at 7:05 EST. Masahiro Tanaka will toe the rubber against Carlos Carrasco as the Yankees try to put away Cleveland and clear this first playoff hurdle.
- Who has the starting pitching edge in this game, the Yankees with Tanaka, or Cleveland with Carlos Carrasco?
- How short a leash should Aaron Boone have with Tanaka with a rested bullpen?
