New York Yankees
The Yanks charge into this Thursday night pairing flashing a 60-31 record that ranks them 2nd in the AL East. Currently 3 ½ games behind the division leading Red Sox, New York needs mount a decent win streak in the coming weeks lest risk falling too far behind Boston. All in all the Yankees are 4-2 in their last 6 but they can’t afford any mistakes considering that the Sox are currently riding a 9-game winning streak. New York got the win against the Orioles the other night and will be sending Luis Severino to the mound this evening in an effort to rack up a win streak. Severino is 14-2 on the season and brings a 2.12 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP to the mound.
Players to Watch: Aaron Judge (25 HR, 60 RBI, .281 BA), Giancarlo Stanton (22 HR, 54 RBI, .276 BA), and Didi Gregorius (15 HR, 48 RBI, .260 BA).
The Indians step into tonight’s pairing sporting a 50-41 record that ranks them 1st in the AL Central. With an 8 ½ game lead over the second seeded Minnesota Twins, it’s safe to say that Cleveland has racked up a decent lead at the top of the division. However, since they’re 1-4 in their last 5, Cleveland needs to win tonight to keep it that way. To challenge the talent New York will be sending to the mound, Cleveland will be starting Corey Kluber tonight. Kluber is 12-4 on the season and wields a 2.49 ERA and a 0.88 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Francisco Lindor (25 HR, 62 RBI, .295 BA), Jose Ramirez (27 HR, 65 RBI, .293 BA), and Edwin Encarnacion (20 HR, 62 RBI, .227 BA).
