Guardians vs Yankees live stream: How to watch ALDS Game 5 online tonight
Tonight, the Guardians vs Yankees live stream puts the entire post-season for New York and Cleveland on the line. Can New York bring a lead to its bullpen, and have its relief pitches record the last of the 27 outs (barring extra innings)? And will Arron Judge chip in for the tally?
BREAKING NEWS: The Guardians vs Yankees live stream has been delayed, even though it isn’t raining yet. The forecast will be reassessed at 7 p.m. ET.

Well, that’s how last night went, in a game where New York jumped out with a lead and didn’t give it up. Most of that lead was acquired by a 2-run HR from Harrison Bader, who went 429 feet into left-center field.
Cleveland’s Josh Naylor, though, got to perform his home run celebration, and declare that Yankees ace Gerrit Cole is his son. Or at least that’s what his pantomime said.
And while Cole did his part (7 IP, 8 SO) over 110 pitches, the beleaguered Yankees relief pitching managed to get things done too. Clay Holmes threw two strikeouts and a walk, and Wandy Peralta got one strikeout.
As for Game 5’s pitchers? Well, due to the re-arranged series schedule after that rain delay, Jameson Taillon will rep the Bronx and Aaron Civale will take the mound for Cleveland. Taillon took the loss in game 2, which Civale hasn’t pitched at all in this series (it’s been a dozen days since his Oct. 5 appearance).

If you’re away from easy access to TBS, you’re not out of luck when it comes to following your team through the playoffs. Live streams are still possible in your current neck of the woods, though — because with a virtual private network, or VPN, you can appear to be surfing the web from your home town (or somewhere that blackouts won’t hit), and access the same streaming services you already paid for.
Not sure which VPN is right for you? We’ve tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab), which offers superb speeds and excellent customer service.
