ALDS Game 2 Preview: New York Yankees @ Cleveland Indians

Two days in a row the New York Yankees and the Cleveland Indians will face off inside Progressive Field as a part of the American League Division Series. Last night we watched as Trevor Bauer and Sonny Gray faced off head-to-head and later this evening we will watch as CC Sabathia takes the ball for the Yankees and Corey Kluber takes the ball for the Indians. Home field advantage, aces and veteran pitchers on the mound. Let’s get to it here in Cleveland.

Sabathia will face off against the team that drafted him into professional baseball tonight at the ripe old age of 37-years old. Sabathia will not blow these Cleveland Indians hitters away, he hasn’t blown anyone away all season long, and instead will have to rely on command and control of all his pitches in order to win tonight for the Yankees.

Kluber had yet another AL Cy Young Award caliber season here in 2017 leading the Major Leagues in ERA with a 2.25 ERA. Kluber has been especially good since June 1 posting a 15-2 record with a 1.62 ERA and 224 strikeouts in just 166.1 innings pitched. Pure dominance.

The game will be played at 5:00 pm ET inside Progressive Field in Cleveland and can be seen on MLB Network. You can also follow along in your cars and on the radio on your commute home from work by tuning into either WFAN with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman or ESPN Radio. Need a win, get an ALDS win. Go Yankees!
