When the New York Yankees officially welcome in the Cleveland Indians for Game 3 of the ALDS, their playoff lives will be on the line.

It’s officially on. When the New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians get underway in the Bronx on Sunday night for Game 3 of the ALDS, there will be no more tomorrow for the home team.

Down 2-0 to arguably the best team in baseball, Joe Girardi will send Masahiro Tanaka to the mound.

Of course, everybody understands what the Yanks are now facing after seeing a comfortable 8-3 victory in Game 2 turn into a 9-8 extra-inning nightmare. The only thing compounding the horrid dream is the club actually got to and smacked around Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber.

Where to Watch: FS1

First Pitch: 7:38 p.m. ET from the Bronx

Starting Pitchers:

  • Yankees: Masahiro Tanaka (13-12, 4.74)
  • Tribe: Carlos Carrasco (18-6, 3.29)

Should the Bombers find a way in this one, ace Luis Severino will go in Game 4 on Monday night.
