With the 2nd half of the 2015 MLB Season closing in the teams are jockeying for playoff spots and the Yankees at present are on top of their east division, so we are reviewing the game between the Indians of Cleveland playing the visiting Yankees of New York on Tuesday the 11th of August with game time scheduled for 7:10 PM ET with the game to be played at the Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio.
Presently the Yankees of New York are leading the AL East with a record of 61 wins and 49 losses, but that might not be for long, since the Blue Jays of Toronto are on a hot winning streak lately. New York now only holds a lead of 1.5 games, and in this game with Cleveland they hope to increase that lead. In this game the Yankees will start rookie pitcher L Severino against the Indians of Cleveland who have 51 wins and 59 losses and are low in the AL Central.
If you’re a fan of the Yankees and Bet on MLB at SBG Global.com or other similar betting sites, your rookie Severino is 0-1with an ERA of 1.81and lost his first big league game to Boston this past Wednesday 2-1. However the loss was impressive for the rookie as he pitched for 5 innings, with 7 strike outs, 2 hits and 1 run for the 21 year old Dominican. So he gets his 2nd start against the Indians on Tuesday and the Yankees are 6-4 at this field since back in the 2012 season. In that game against Boston many of the Yankees offensive starters weren’t in the lineup, an offense that averages 2nd in the MLB with 529 runs.
This in his 2nd start the Yankees lineup is looking to support Severino as D. Gretorious hitting .322 and C. Headley hitting .260 for August, lead the Yankees in this 2nd game, as the will face the Indians pitcher C. Carrasco.
If you’re a Indians of Cleveland fan, you know you’re starting pitcher for this Tuesday game C. Carrasco has been dazzling with his 11 wins and 8 losses and an ERA of 3.74, especially in his last game with Angels of L.A. who the Indians beat 2-0 on Tuesday past, while Carrasco 1 hit, 1 walk and has 7 strikeouts, as he did not get the win since the game went 12 inning before the tribe scored to win the game.
In his last 4 starts Carrasco has 1 win and 1 loss and a strong ERA of 2.56. His worst game lately was on the 25th of July against the White Sox as he gave up 6 runs in the 10-3 loss to the Sox. To date against the Yankees, Carrasco has six appearances, with 4 starts and his record in 3 wins and 2 losses with an overall ERA of 4.93. Carrasco in his ultimate 10 games has 7 wins and 3 losses.
Offensively for the Indians their top 3 players in the lead are J. Ramirez, F. Lindor and M. Brantley and all 3 will be trying to give the Yankees rookie Severino a difficult time for his just 2 big league game. Presently leading off for the Yankees is Ramirez who in his last 6 games in averaging .334 with 8 hits in 24 at bats, while Lindor is hitting .326 and Brantley is at .392 since the All-Star break.
We predict that the Indians of Cleveland playing at home will be victorious in this game beating the Yankees 4-3 as the final score.
