For the 10th time in MLB history, a team has come back from an 0-2 hole to win a best-of-five series.
"The difference between Friday and today is about as big as you can get. I don't know at any point in my career that I felt worse than I did on Friday," said Yankees Manager Joe Girardi.
It's the second time the Yankees have done it as Didi Gregorius continued to follow in the footsteps of clutch Yankee shortstops.
Sir Didi slugged a pair of dingers off Indians Ace Corey Kluber and gave the Yankees a lead which they would not relinquish.
"They tried to come in with another fastball with two strikes and I ended up putting a really good swing on it and it put us up in the first inning," said Gregorius. "Then my next at bat, I was like if he threw me the nasty cutter first pitch, I might swing and he thew it actually and I fouled it off. I said alright back to fastball away and then I think he threw me a curveball or slider or cutter inside again and I ended up putting a good swing on it and it went out."
Meanwhile, CC Sabathia, vintage CC, becoming the first pitcher in postseason history to strike out at least nine in less than five innings.
"You just want to do whatever you can to try to get the team to the next round and we was able to do that tonight," said Sabathia.
The bullpen took care of the rest with David Robertson and Aroldis Chapman polishing off the Indians hitters.
"You got a one run game there. I'm just trying to make quality pitches. Lindor is a great hitter. I just got lucky, got a ground ball double play and from then on, I don't even really remember what happened. I just went out there and pitched and threw strikes and try to let my defense help me out," said Robertson.
Now this fairytale season adds another chapter.
The ALCS, a place the bombers haven't been to since 2012.
Game One is in Houston Friday night.
