CLEVELAND (AP) DJ LeMahieu's tiebreaking single in the ninth inning off Cleveland closer Brad Hand sent the New York Yankees into the AL Division Series with a wild 10-9 win over the Indians early Thursday in a rain-delayed Game 2 that started in September and ended in October.
At 4 hours, 50 minutes - even without the delays - it was the longest nine-inning game (regular season or postseason) in major league history, ending after 1 a.m.
"I don't know how you top that one - the back and forth, the amount of big plays," Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. "Tonight just had that feeling that these guys weren't going to be denied. They weren't going to lose."
