The Yankees bested the Indians 7-3 in Game 4 of the ALDS. It was another elimination game for the Yankees, who after dropping the opening two games of the series have now evened the best-of-five set at two games apiece. Luis Severino, Aaron Judge and the Yankees are headed back to Cleveland for a decisive Game 5, thanks to lots of help from the Indians.
Severino rebounded from his playoff debacle, Judge delivered a big hit and the Yankees took advantage of shoddy defense by Cleveland to beat the Indians 7-3 Monday night and even their AL Division Series at two games apiece.

Cleveland starter Trevor Bauer struggled on three days’ rest and was chased in the second inning. But it was on the wet Yankee Stadium field where the Indians flopped; committing a season-high four errors that were a franchise record for a postseason game and led to six unearned runs. The defending AL champions made only 76 errors all season, fewest in the league.
The Yankees could have gone with Sonny Gray in Game 5 but will hand the ball to CC Sabathia, who pitched better in Game 2 than Gray did in Game 1. For the Indians, there is no second choice: they will go with Cy Young candidate Corey Kluber, who the Yankees spanked in Game 2.
The fourth elimination game is Wednesday when the Yankees attempt to be the seventh team in Division Series history to climb all the way out of a 0-2 hole.
