• Recent Yankees ALCS Game 5 History

    Posted by on October 20th, 2010 · Comments (0)

    Since the LCS series went to a best-of-seven format, there have been eight times where the Yankees have played a Game 5 in an ALCS (like they will, later today). And, the last time the Yankees won a Game 5 in an ALCS was 2003. Below are the starters who the Yankees have used in their last eight ALCS Game 5 situations and the outcomes of those games.

    On the bright side, seven out of eight times here, when the Yankees played a Game 5 of an ALCS, they reached the World Series. Can they make it eight of nine this year?
