New York Yankees 2B Gleyber Torres cracks 1st Major League Baseball home run

Carig Poise power and another statement for the Yankees

To get to Game 5, the Yankees needed to win twice at home and they won a pair of elimination games at Yankee Stadium before celebrating in Cleveland.

At 21 years old, 142 days, Torres became the youngest Yankee to hit his first homer since John Ellis on May 17, 1969. The Indians won the second game 13-4 after losing the first 13-11 to the Blue Jays in 11 innings, and they have now alternated wins and losses in their past six.

Before losing the past three matchups with the Yankees last postseason, the Indians went 7-2 in the previous nine meetings, according to the OddsShark MLB Database.

Yankees veteran lefty CC Sabathia continued his incredible age-37 season with a dominant performance. NY starter CC Sabathia tossed six scoreless frames before Chasen Shreve allowed four runs without getting an out. He's made seven for the season. He gave up three hits - two doubles - but never let a runner reach third base. It lowered his ERA to 1.71 - the lowest ERA through five starts in any season for the left-hander.

Torres is the second Yankee since 1999 to hit a three-run HR for his first career homer (also Colin Curtis on 7/21/10 vs. Los Angeles-AL); also, Hideki Matsui hit a grand slam for his first homer on 4/8/03 vs. Minnesota.

Along with Cleveland's Bradley Zimmer, marked the first game in which both teams' starting No. 9 hitters hit a three-run HR (or grand slam) since Texas' Bill Haselman and Oakland's Carlos Pena turned the trick on 4/4/02 in Oakland.

Two batters later, Aaron Judge rocked a solo shot over over the wall down the left-field line, his eighth blast of the season. The bottom of the fifth inning led off with Gary Sanchez driving a deep fly to the left-field stands for his ninth of the year to make it 5-0.

That brought up Ronald Torreyes, who got the start at short in place of a resting Didi Gregorius.

He dove awkwardly and was kicked in the head by Francisco Lindor's right cleat while making a putout at second base on a grounder by Jason Kipnis. Yankee starter Sonny Gray (2-2, 6.00) allowed two runs on four hits in six innings. After trainer Steve Donahue and manager Aaron Boone checked on Gregorius for a few minutes, he stayed in. But he got back up and stayed in the game. However, Sabathia is 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA in his last four starts versus Cleveland dating back to 2015, and the price is too high to back him.
