Two outs, four straight singles.
And the Yankees take Game 1 of the rematch.
Seventh inning, bases loaded, a fragile 3-0 lead, when Gleyber Torres comes up.
And he works a brilliant at-bat against Pressly. Full count, a slider low and outside, and he lifts it over the infield to just drop in for a hit. Two more runs score.
Yankees lead, 5-0.

Earlier in the game he hit a home run and RBI double.
His ninth career playoff game, just 22 years old—and now he’s got the masterpiece.
It might be time this guy keeps the belt for good.
Gleyber Torres poses with his parents after the Yankees' ALCS Game 1 victory. Aaron Judge: "We give out that belt after every win and he came up to me before the game and said, ‘I'm getting the belt tonight." https://t.co/pPQGVASsAV pic.twitter.com/0MiLbNRlUJ
