The Cleveland Indians are going for their first sweep since May when they take on the New York Yankees tonight. Should they pull it off, this will also be their fifth straight win overall. On the mound will be Trevor Bauer who went six and one-third innings last Saturday against the Minnesota Twins.
If Bauer's last start seems hazy in your memory, it may be because he was barely relevant in the Tribe's 17-4 win over Minnesota. In post-game interviews, Bauer reiterated the fact that the only important thing, which is true, but he did give up three home runs to a stagnant Twins offense. He will be going up a much tougher lineup today, and I think it is a safe bet he will not have 17 runs of support again.
