Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Cleveland Indians 7/7

Welcome to Cleveland Yankees fans where some of the hottest and best baseball in all of the American League is currently being played. Just in time for the New York Yankees to arrive, how convenient. Where is Nick Swisher when you need him? On a serious note though the Yankees do square off head-to-head with the Indians tonight in the last series before the All-Star Game and the All-Star break. For the Yankees the team will send Ivan Nova to the mound to face off with Trevor Bauer for the Indians.

Nova has struggled lately but he did show signs of snapping out of it last time out against the San Diego Padres. Nova allowed just four hits in 5.1 innings while striking out seven while giving up just one run. Over Nova’s previous seven starts he had posted a 6.92 ERA so this start was a sight for sore eyes.

Bauer last pitched out of the bullpen for Cleveland in the 19-inning marathon with the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday. In the appearance Bauer threw five shutout innings and heads into the month of July after throwing a 3-0 record with a 2.01 ERA up in the month of June.

The game will be played at 7:10 pm ET inside Progressive Field (I liked it better when it was Jacobs Field but whatever) and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV. This series is going to hurt. Let’s get it over with. Go Yankees!
