CLEVELAND, OH - The Cleveland Indians will look to advance to the ALCS for the second-straight season as they face the New York Yankees in a decisive Game 5 of the ALDS on Wednesday night.

Corey Kluber will look to rebound from his Game 2 letdown when he didn't make it out of the third inning while allowing six runs.

In games following a bad start of 4+ runs this season, Kluber is 3-1 with a 0.90 ERA and 34 K's while only allowing 14 hits.

Another good sign for Indians fans is Edwin Encarnacion being back in the lineup for Game 5 where he will bat in his normal spot. He has fared well against Yankees starter CC Sabathia in his career.
