The New York Yankees defeated the visiting Minnesota Twins 8-4 on Tuesday night to advance to the ALDS to face the Cleveland Indians on Thursday.

Manager Terry Francona will maintain Corey Kluber's usual schedule, as he starts Game 2 on Friday. Kluber has been overpowering this season, going 18-4 with a 2.25 ERA on his way to a likely second Cy Young win. In those 23 starts since June 1, he's 15-2 with a 1.62 ERA and 224 strikeouts.

The Cleveland Indians were white hot for the majority of the second half of the season to run away with the American League Central crown.

The decision to go with Bauer over Kluber - or even ahead of scheduled Game 3 starter Carlos Carrasco - is curious on a number of levels. The victor of No. 20 heads for Los Angeles to play the NL West champion Dodgers in a best-of-five Division Series beginning Friday. Trevor's done a heck of a job.

Just like the first game of their traditional doubleheader at Yankee Stadium, the Indians started fast offensively, pitched well throughout and limited the effectiveness of a powerful Yankees offense at Yankee Stadium.

Kluber didn't start last year's ALDS opener against Boston, but that was because he was coming off a hamstring injury.

Bauer will take the hill after posting a 17-9 record with a 3.88 FIP over 31 regular season starts. It's Trevor Bauer getting the nod in Game 1. He is the only current Major League pitcher to earn the award three times!

Also, All-Star left fielder Michael Brantley will be on the ALDS 25-man roster as a pinch-hitter. "If we feel the need to hit, we can".
