SAN DIEGO, Calif. — When the New York Yankees needed their star-studded lineup to produce runs in an elimination playoff game, they got three hits.

When they really could have used a special play in the field to save a run, Aaron Judge hit his head on the wall.

And when the Yankees needed their superstar closer to shut down the Tampa Bay Rays, Aroldis Chapman gave up a homer to an undrafted infielder who had never gone yard in a playoff game.

New York’s season came to a crashing end in San Diego with a 2-1 loss in Game 5 of the AL Division Series.
