Guardians sweep Rays, return to division series to face Yankees

CLEVELAND -- Cleveland's baseball franchise is back in the division series for the first time since 2018 after their two-game sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays in one of the American League wild card affairs.

The Guardians ended a marathon Game 2 with a walk-off solo home run by Oscar Gonzalez in the 15th inning on Saturday for the 1-0 victory. The Guardians took Game 1, 2-1, on Friday.

It'll be their fourth division series appearance since 2016 - though that's the last year they advanced to the ALCS.

Cleveland will face the New York Yankees beginning on Tuesday in New York.
