The motto of this year's MLB Playoffs: Take '17. Every team is talented and deep; there's no telling who might walk away with the 2017 championship. Here, we look back on the New York/Cleveland ALDS.

With the game still close in the 9th, longtime Yankee OF Brett Gardner squared off against Indians CL Cody Allen. It took 12 pitches (and one very close check swing), but Gardner triumphed with an RBI single. Plus, another run scored on an E9! Final: Yankees 5, Indians 2, Yankees advance.
