The Cleveland Guardians’ stay in NYC ain’t exactly going smoothly … the team was forced to switch hotels Monday night just hours ahead of their pivotal Game 5 against the Yankees in the ALDS.
The issue started with Monday night’s rain out of what was supposed to be the deciding Game 5 vs. the Yanks … but Mother Nature had other ideas.

Cleveland planned to either fly to Houston (win Game 5) or back to Ohio (lose Game 5). However, the game was rained out … and when the team tried to go back to the hotel, they were told the place was booked, according to ESPN’s Eduardo Perez.
Cleveland and the NY are tied 2-2 in the best-of-five series. The Yankees are leading the Guardians 4-0 … with game 5 being played Tuesday afternoon.

But, it’s not over yet … the series has had its fair share of thrilling moments, including Cleveland rallying from down three runs in the bottom of the ninth inning Saturday night to win 6-5.
