Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Cleveland Indians 5/4



Good morning Yankees family and a very Happy Friday to you all. The New York Yankees head home tonight fresh off a hell of a road trip that saw the team dominate the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and more than hold their own against the defending champion Houston Astros. This team is heating up and is primed to make a run, a run that continues tonight in the Bronx against the Cleveland Indians. In the opener of the three-game set this weekend the Yankees will send CC Sabathia to the mound to face off with Josh Tomlin for the Indians. Let’s get to it in the Bronx.

Sabathia is looking for his third straight win since coming off the disabled list tonight as he opens up the series with the Yankees against the team that drafted him. Sabathia is 2-0 with a 0.52 ERA since coming off the disabled list in three starts allowing just one earned run in 17.1 innings of work over that span.



Tomlin on the other hand has struggled lately including his last start against the Seattle Mariners. In that start on Sunday the Indians right-hander allowed six runs on 10 hits including two home runs in six innings of work for Cleveland in a loss. Tomlin has allowed 10 home runs in 18.2 innings pitched this year and enters the Cathedral in the Bronx with a career 8.57 ERA in 21 innings pitched there throughout his career.

The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium in the Bronx and can be seen on WPIX Channel 11. You can also follow along with the game on MLB TV, with the MLB At-Bat app and by tuning into the Yankees radio broadcast with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN.

Enjoy the game, too many damn home runs again tonight, and go Yankees!!
