CLEVELAND (AP) — DJ LeMahieu’s tiebreaking single in the ninth inning off closer Brad Hand sent the New York Yankees into the AL Division Series with a wild 10-9 win over the Cleveland Indians in a Game 2 that started in September and ended in October. At 4 hours, 50 minutes — even without two rain delays totaling another 76 minutes — it was the longest nine-inning game in major league history. The Yankees will play the rival Tampa Bay Rays in a best-of-five Division Series next week in San Diego. Gio Urshela hit a grand slam for the Yankees. They rallied for two runs in the ninth against Hand, who went 16 of 16 on save tries during the season.
