Game 1: Thursday, July 12, 7:10 PM EST

Starters: Luis Severino (14-2, 2.12 ERA) vs. Corey Kluber (12-4, 2.49 ERA)

Pitching:

The Yankees are almost automatic when Severino is on the mound. The 24-year-old pitcher has led the Yankees to a 9-1 record in his last 10 starts. In his most recent appearance on the mound, he allowed three runs on five hits with five strikeouts in five innings of an 8-5 road win over Toronto. Kluber, meanwhile, is coming off an unfortunate start, as he did not factor into a decision despite pitching seven scoreless innings in a 6-3 home loss to Oakland on July 7.  He is 1-0 with a 2.08 ERA in two starts so far this month.

Hitting:

  • Jose Ramirez is 3-for-10 with two homers vs. Severino.
  • Brett Gardner is 4-for-19 vs. Kluber.

Writer’s Prediction:

Yankees win, 4-3.


Game 2 Friday, July 13, 7:10 PM EST

Starters: Domingo Germán (2-4, 5.06 ERA) vs. Shane Bieber (4-1, 3.47 ERA)

Pitching:

The Yankees are 2-0 in German’s last two starts, a stretch that includes his six-inning outing on Jul. 8 against the Blue Jays in which he allowed just an earned run on four hits to lead New York to a 2-1 road win. He has a 3.18 ERA in his last three starts. Bieber, on the other hand, was tagged with four runs on eight hits allowed in six innings of a 6-0 loss at home to Oakland on Jul. 8. The Indians are 5-1 in his last six starts, however.

Hitting:

  • The Indians’ current lineup is only .214 against German.

Writer’s Prediction:

Yankees win, 6-4.


Game 3 Saturday, July 14, 7:15 PM EST

Starters: CC Sabathia (6-4, 3.34 ERA) vs. Mike Clevinger (7-4, 3.34 ERA)

Pitching:

Sabathia is coming off an ugly outing on Jul. 9, allowing five earned runs on seven hits in five innings of a 5-4 road loss to Baltimore. The former Indians star is 51-41 with a 3.80 ERA in 123 career starts in Cleveland. As for Clevinger, he’s also allowed five earned runs on seven hits in six innings of a 7-5 home loss to Cincy on Jul. 9. He is 1-2 with a 5.29 ERA in his last three trips to the mound.

Hitting:

  • Edwin Encarnacion is 15-for-57 vs. Sabathia.
  • The Yankees’ current lineup is only .130 against Clevinger.

Writer’s Prediction:

Indians win, 5-3.


Game 4 Sunday, July 15, 1;10 PM EST

Starters: Masahiro Tanaka (7-2, 4.68 ERA) vs. Trevor Bauer (8-6, 2.30 ERA)

Pitching:

In his first start in almost a month, Tanaka allowed three earned runs on six hits in 4.1 innings of a 6-5 road loss to Baltimore on Jul. 10. The Yankees are hoping Tanaka has shaken off the rust as he takes on Cleveland this Sunday. The Yankees are 8-2 in Tanaka’s last 10 starts. The Indians will counter Tanaka with Bauer, who was sensational in his last start, tossing eight scoreless inning and striking out 12, albeit in a 7-4 loss at home to Cincinnati on Jul. 10. He has a 1.84 ERA in his last 11 starts.

Hitting:

  • Edwin Encarnacion is 10-for-22 vs. Tanaka.
  • Didi Gregorius is 5-for-16 vs. Bauer.

Writer’s Prediction:

Indians win, 5-3.
