Today In Tribe History: October 4, 2007

The Cleveland Indians play their first postseason game since 2001, welcoming in the New York Yankees for Game 1 of the American League Division Series. The Tribe plays the ungracious host, as a three-run first and a five-run fifth inning lead them to an easy 12-3 victory.

C.C. Sabathia earns the win, allowing all three runs and four of the Yankees’ five hits on the day in five innings of work. His six walks do not come back to haunt him. Four Indians home runs pace the scoring, including shots by Asdrubal Cabrera, Victor Martinez, Travis Hafner, and Ryan Garko.
