The Cleveland Indians picked up their ace Friday night.
The New York Yankees knocked around Corey Kluber in Game 2 of the teams’ American League Division Series matchup, but the Indians laughed last.
Trailing 8-3, Cleveland mounted a comeback, starting in the sixth inning when when star shortstop Francisco Lindor crushed a grand slam off right-hander Chad Green.
And Jay Bruce, whom the Yankees tried to acquire in August, tied the game with a solo blast in the eighth.
The teams remained deadlocked until the 13th inning when catcher Yan Gomes sent the Indians fans home happy with a walk-off RBI double off Dellin Betances to give Cleveland a 9-8 win.
What a game.
The Indians take a 2-0 series lead to New York, where where Carlos Carrasco will take on Masahiro Tanaka on Sunday.
