Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Cleveland Indians 7/13

Happy Friday to you all! In the second game of this four-game weekend set between the New York Yankees and the Cleveland Indians we will all watch as these two teams treat us with potentially another great pitching matchup. In the start tonight the Yankees will send Domingo German to the mound to face off with Shane Bieber for the Indians. For some reason I can see this quickly becoming a battle of the bullpens and let me also say that I still hate seeing Andrew Miller coming out of the Indians pen and not the Yankees pen, even if it did net us Justus Sheffield and Billy McKinney. Let’s get to it here in Cleveland’s Progressive Field.

German heads into his second career start against the Indians tonight fresh off a solid start last time out against the Toronto Blue Jays. In his last start the young Yankees right-hander allowed just one run on four hits in a victory against Toronto. In German’s first career start, which came against these Indians, the righty tosses six scoreless innings with nine strikeouts in a Yankees victory.

Bieber was not sharp in his last start against the Oakland Athletics on Sunday after allowing four runs on eight hits in six innings of work. Bieber struck out seven and only walked one improving his impressive K/BB ratio as a rookie this season.

The game will be played at 7:10 pm ET inside Progressive Field in Cleveland and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB Network. 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, it wouldn’t surprise me to see Greg Bird take Miller deep again tonight just because, and go Yankees!!
