The alarm bells are certainly going off for the New York Yankees, but they have been at least a little bit better recently and will now look to climb just one step closer to the .500 mark this Sunday as they take on the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field.
New York Yankees
A bit better maybe is a little bit of an understatement, as they have really put their foot down in this series and have now given themselves the opportunity to pick up a 4 game sweep over the Indians on the road.
It was a battle of the aces in that last game that the Yankees won, as Gerrit Cole and Shane Bieber went toe to toe in what was a highly entertaining pitchers duel that the Bronx Bombers were able to narrowly edge.
A big relief for the Yankees will be the fact that Giancarlo Stanton appears to be getting back to his best, as he has come up clutch in multiple scenarios in this series with Celeveland and has now gotten himself up to 5 home runs on the season.
Jameson Taillon will be entrusted with the start here, and he should be confident he can do the business here, as he is coming off a solid 5 inning start against the Braves where he was able to hold Atlanta to just 1 run.
It looks like the Indians are going to turn into more of a pitching oriented team now with the loss of Francisco Lindor in the heart of their batting lineup, as they rank towards the bottom of most offensive statistical categories and only come into this game with a somewhat respectable 8-10 record because of their stellar pitching.
They might be in line to pick up another good start as well as Triston McKenzie heads to the mound and although his stats will not blow you out of the water, he no doubt has some serious upside and insane strikeout stuff, so it would not surprise me if we see him cut through the Yankees batting lineup here.

Free New York Yankees vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
The New York Yankees might be starting to come out of their offensive slump, but I think they get shut down here by McKenzie, as he is a guy I am big on going forward, as I think he has a ton of talent.
On the other side of things, I have just not seen enough from this Indians batting lineup to think they are going to have some big offensive performance here, so I like this game to stay under the total which is currently posted at 8.
It is also expected to stay pretty cool in the Cleveland area for this one, as it is expected to stay in the low 50’s, so the ball should not be carrying too much reducing home run chances in all directions.
