The Yankees’ swagger returned with one swing early on Thursday evening, Luke Voit dropping his bat and eyeing a monstrous second-inning drive. The frustration of the previous two nights evaporated into the Southern California haze, sparking optimism that this clash of division titans will be remembered as a comeback story.
Voit launched a 453-foot blast for his first postseason homer and Gleyber Torres added a two-run shot as the Yankees cam out swinging, celebrating a 5-1 victory over the Rays in Game 4 of the American League Division Series. New York will hand ace Gerrit Cole the ball for a winner-take-all contest on Friday at Petco Park.
“We’re going to win it,” Voit said. “Gerrit on the mound, that’s the best situation possible for us. We’re locked and loaded. It’s a big win, big momentum for us.”
