Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Cleveland Indians 8/4

The New York Yankees and the Cleveland Indians continue their four-game set stretching into the weekend with the second head-to-head meeting tonight inside Progressive Field in Cleveland. Another day another shiny new toy for the Yankees as we all watched Sonny Gray make his debut for New York last night against these Indians. Tonight we get to watch Jaime Garcia make his debut for the Bronx Bombers after coming over in a trade with the Minnesota Twins. Opposing Garcia and looking to spoil his Yankees debut is Trevor Bauer for the Indians. I am very excited to see Garcia pitch so my eyes will be glued to this start, no doubt about it.

Garcia, like Sonny Gray yesterday, will be making his Yankees debut after being acquired from the Minnesota Twins before the July 31st trading deadline. Garcia made one start for the Twins after being acquired from the Atlanta Braves and picked up a win in the start allowing three runs and eight hits in 6.2 innings pitched against the Oakland Athletics.

Bauer was strong in his last start against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim allowing just one run in eight innings of work. Bauer throughout his career has not been strong against the Yankees though allowing 11 runs in 7.2 innings which cover a three game sample size. More of that tonight please.

The game will be played at 7:10 pm ET inside Progressive Field in Cleveland and can be seen on the YES Network, MLB Network and MLB TV. You can also follow along in your cars and on the radio by tuning into WFAN with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman. Enjoy the game and as always, Go Yankees!!!
