Watch: Sanchez’s Two-Run Homer Gives the Yankees the Early Lead Over the Indians

CLEVELAND – In what seemed like a reversal of Thursday’s 4-0 win for the Indians, Friday it’s the Yankees getting off to a fast start against Tribe ace Corey Kluber.

New York forced the Indians likely Cy Young Award Winner to throw 38 pitches, with a key pitch a two-run homer coming off the bat of three hitter Gary Sanchez after Kluber walked Aaron Judge on five pitches.

Kluber was able to get out of another jam thanks to a two-out error by Jose Ramirez that put runners on first and third by striking out Aaron Hicks, but the damage was done with the two-run homer.

Here’s Sanchez’s two-run bomb to center that quickly put the Yankees ahead.

Needless to say the Indians will have plenty of work to do against former Tribe pitcher C.C. Sabathia.
