The New York Yankees will visit the Cleveland Indians in an AL showdown on Saturday night. It will be the third of a four-game set at Progressive Field.

The Yankees took the second game 5-3 after another strong performance from the bullpen. They tossed 4.1 scoreless innings in relief of Jordan Montgomery, only allowing one hit. From the dish the Yankees had 6 hits, 4 of which were home runs. Giancarlo Stanton hit 2 in the game. To start the season, the Yankees have a .210 team batting average and a .656 OPS. Stanton leads the team with 5 home runs and 14 RBI.

Starting for the Yankees in this one will be their ace, Gerrit Cole. To start the season, he is 2-1 with a 1.82 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 39 strikeouts. Cole has allowed a .110 average with 12 strikeouts in 36 career at bats against this Indians lineup.

The Indians have now lost 3 in a row after their last game against the Yankees. Logan Allen only lasted 2.1 innings in the start, allowing 4 runs off 3 home runs. From the dish they had just 5 hits but managed to go 3-6 with runner in scoring position. To start the year, Cleveland has a .207 team batting average and .664 OPS. Franmil Reyes leads the team with a .270 average, .872 OPS and 11 RBI.

Getting the start for the Indians on Saturday will be 2020 CY Young award winner Shane Bieber. To start the season, he is 2-1 with a 2.45 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 48 strikeouts. Against this Yankees lineup in his career, he has allowed a .167 average with 7 strikeouts in 22 at bats.

The Yankees are 4-6 in their last ten games, 3-4 on the road this season, and the under is 11-7 in their games.

The Indians are 4-6 in their last ten games, 4-3 at home this season, and the under is 10-7 in their games.

This one is a premier pitching matchup between two Cy Young candidates. Both have been off to a good start and have had success against these lineups in the past. It has been the opposite for these teams from the plate, but the Yankees have started to wake up in the last few games. With a bullpen that ranks #1 in ERA and WHIP, I like New York to find a way to win a tight one late. Give me the Yankees to win.
