Yankees hang on to edge Cleveland in 10th

After the large early lead had been erased, after the sure-handed shortstop had surprisingly booted a ball, after the kid who had been driven in overnight from Scranton was thrust into a save situation, the Yankees could finally celebrate Sunday.

Thanks to Aaron Hicks’ go-ahead RBI double, the Yanks won, 7-6, in 10 innings at Progressive Field, avoiding a sweep at the hands of the Indians and sending them home happy for the Subway Series that begins Monday night. The Yankees blew a 5-0 advantage, as well as a ninth-inning advantage, and probably created more questions than they answered.
