Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Cleveland Indians 8/7

The New York Yankees and the Cleveland Indians will be right back in the Bronx for another weekend game here inside Yankee Stadium as these two teams finish off their three game set. For whatever reason these Yankees struggle against the teams they should be beating on paper, the Tampa Bay Rays for example, while they play the better teams in the league tough and well, see the New York Mets and these last two series with the Indians as a perfect example of this. In the finale the Yankees will send Masahiro Tanaka to the mound to square off with one of the Indians best starters in Carlos Carrasco.

Tanaka has not had a great month of August in his short MLB career which is evident by his career 4.24 ERA. Unfortunately this afternoon will be another August start for the Yankees right-hander so maybe he can turn it around against a tough offense in Cleveland.

Carrasco did not have a great August start last time out either pitching just 3.2 innings against the Minnesota Twins. Carrasco allowed eight runs on nine hits in the contest before leaving with an "L" in the loss column.

The game will be played at 1:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV. Let's hope the Yankees pull another win out with their ace on the mound, dominate another series and head into the off day with the series in Fenway Park looming with the good times rolling. Go Yankees!
