New York Yankees
The key for the Yankees this season has been to turn things over to the back end of their bullpen.
Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman pitched 3.2 scoreless innings to close things out on Friday. In games these three pitch in, the Yankees have lost just 1 game this season.
New York is now 3-4 on this current road trip, as they look to get back to the .500 mark both overall and on the road trip here on Friday.
New York will send out Chad Greene here, who is coming off his first major league victory.
Greene struck out 8, while allowing just 1 run against the Padres last time out. In his other start, he allowed 6 runs to the Diamondbacks.
The Indians losing at home has been quite rare. Losing back to back games at home has been extremely rare.
Cleveland enters Friday losing back to back home games, as they blew a 2-0 lead and fell just short in their battle back in a 5-4 defeat.
Cleveland saw the Yankees win a pair of replay challenges, one that included the go ahead run, with another being the final out at first base that would have loaded the bases for Yan Gomes.
Cleveland still holds a 6.5 game lead thanks to Detroit blowing a 4-3 lead against Toronto late.
The Indians will send out newly announced All Star Corey Kluber here. Kluber is 8-8 on the season, but has shown plenty of good signs this year which led to his selection.
Kluber was knocked around last time out against the Blue Jays and looks to play stopper here and get the Indians back on track.
He enters 1-1 with a 2.65 ERA in 3 career starts against New York.
Free New York Yankees vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
Cleveland’s bullpen is a major concern for them.
TJ House relieved Bauer in the 6th inning and allowed the inherited runner to score, which turned out to be the game winning run.
Getting some length from Kluber here and shut down innings is a must for the Tribe.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cleveland -1.5 +120
The Indians get a solid start from Kluber, as their offense gets to Greene early and the Indians roll over the Yankees to even the series up.
