8/10 Yankees Game Preview vs. Cleveland Indians

Today the New York Yankees and the Cleveland Indians will play in the finale of their three game set this weekend at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees look to keep their winning ways going today with Hiroki Kuroda on the mound facing off with Carlos Carrasco for the Indians. The game will be played at 1:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network, MLB TV, and can be heard on the radio with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN.

Kuroda took a no decision last time out as the Tigers beat the Yankees in extra innings. Kuroda held the Tigers to three runs and six hits in seven innings. In Kuroda's last three starts he is 1-1 with a 4.58 ERA making you wonder if another August collapse is on the horizon. Kuroda is 2-1 with a 3.10 ERA against the Cleveland Indians in his career.

Carrasco only has 5.1 innings pitched this season and will be making his first start of the season. Carrasco should be fun to face in an afternoon game at Yankee Stadium as the Yankees try to increase Carrasco's 6.75 ERA this season.

Today is Yankees cowboy hat day at the stadium where the first 25,000 guests receive a cowboy hat with the Yankees logo on the front. No I'm not joking and seeing is believing so grab a set of Yankees tickets off the blog for today's game before the Yankees head out on the road. 

Go Yankees!!
