Gerrit Cole
Wendell Cruz | USA TODAY Sports

The New York Yankees turn to Gerrit Cole to seal the series win against the Indians and improve New York’s standing in the Wild Card.

Less than 24 hours after their bats put on a show against the Cleveland Indians on Friday, they practically disappeared Saturday. That plus a costly Gary Sanchez error meant Cleveland won 11-3. Furthermore, the Yankees’ playoff scramble continues.

Thankfully, AL Cy Young contender Gerrit Cole takes the mound for the Yankees in what is absolutely a must-win game.

And because both the Blue Jays and Red Sox won yesterday, New York is a half-game out of the second Wild Card spot.
