The New York Yankees found a way to crack the 2014 American League Cy Young winner.

The Yankees chased Corey Kluber during Wednesday's pivotal Game 5 after the Cleveland Indians' ace allowed three runs over just 3 2/3 innings. It was the second time in the American League Division Series that the Yankees got to Kluber.

Including Game 2, Kluber managed only 6 1/3 innings, allowing nine runs on 10 hits and three walks while striking out 10 in the ALDS.

After allowing fewer than one home run per nine innings during the regular season, the 31-year-old got taken yard four times in the series, including a pair from Didi Gregorius in Game 5.

Coming into the 2017 postseason, Kluber had a sparkling 1.83 ERA over six playoff starts. After his appearances against New York, Kluber's career postseason ERA is now 3.54.
