On Tuesday night, the NY Yankees hopes to continue their march towards the playoffs season against the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field.
The Yanks are coming off a 3-2 win in their first series game against the Indians. Curtis Granderson belted a two-run homer in the eight inning and helped the Yankees pulled ahead for the win. However, 3B Alex Rodriguez was denied 4 times in this game to earn his 600th career homerun. However, it could come as a perfect birthday on Tuesday night.
Yankees' ace CC Sabathia will be on the mound and hopes to deliver another pitching gem. He's 13-3 this season with a 3.18 ERA and has started 21 games for the Yankees. He also won 4 of his last 5 starts for the month of July.
The Indians will counter with the untested young pitcher Josh Tomlin. Tomlin could treat this game as his baptism in the MLB. Pitching his way around the Yankees' vaunted hitters won't be easy. He must prepare his entire pitching arsenal and be ahead always on the pitch count in every Yankees' batter.
The baseball handicappers have installed CC Sabathia and his Yankees as the clear cut favorite to win against the Indians on Tuesday night. The Indians may have a chance if CC Sabathia didn't bring his A-game tomorrow night.
