Yankees Beat Guardians, Will Battle Astros 

Gerrit Cole is undeniably the ace for the Yankees, and he did exactly what he’s supposed to in this division series. Cole may not have been the absolute best starter for New York this season, but he is their most talented, and the one they will always lean on when he’s needed the most. They needed the world from Cole in the ALDS, and he delivered.

The Yankees have kept their hopes for a World Series alive, beating the Cleveland Guardians 5 to 1 in Game 5 of the American League Division Series.

The win moves them into the ALCS and a matchup with the Houston Astros.
