Aces Square off As Yankees Host Indians

New York Yankees

Postseason Series Preview?

The Cleveland Indians and the New York Yankees will meet at Yankee Stadium on Monday night. This game should be a good one. Two of the best pitchers in baseball will be going facing each other. Both teams are knee deep in the playoff battle as well. This could be a precursor to a good postseason series. The Yankees are the American League Wildcard leader, while the Indians are the AL Central leader.

Oddsmakers opened the Yankees as -124-moneyline favorites versus the Indians, while the game’s total opened at 7.5.

The Indians will trot Corey Kluber out to the mound in this one. Right hander Kluber has a 12-4 record and a 2.65 ERA this season. He is 4-1 with a 1.89 ERA in five starts in August. Kluber is also 5-1 with a 2.43 ERA in eight starts since the All-Star break. He is 4-1 with a 1.71 ERA in six career starts against the Yankees. Kluber  is 2-1 with a 2.25 ERA in three starts at Yankee Stadium.

Kluber is coming off his first loss since July 4. He struck out 12 while allowing two runs on four hits over 7 2/3 innings in a 6-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday. During the game, he reached 200 strikeouts for the fourth straight season. He also took over the AL ERA lead the next night when the Indians beat Chris Sale and the Red Sox.

Yankees Bats Struggle Against Kluber

Starting this game for the Yankees will be Luis Severino. The right hander has a 3.10 ERA to go along with a 11-5 record this season. Severino is 6-1 with a 2.16 ERA in eight starts since the All-Star break. His only loss was Aug. 12 when he allowed 10 runs against the Red Sox. Severino is 2-0 with a 1.93 ERA in three career starts against the Yankees. Severino remained unbeaten against the Indians by holding them to one run and two hits in 6 2/3 innings Aug. 6 in Cleveland.

New York’s current roster is hitting a combined .167 (20-for-120) with 37 strikeouts against Kluber. Todd Frazier and Aaron Hicks are 2-for-23 and 3-for-20, respectively, against him, while Chase Headley is 0-for-11.

The Indians’ current roster is a combined 8-for-50 (.160) off Severino. Edwin Encarnacion had one of the two hits in the last meeting and is 3-for-13 lifetime against Severino.
