It's always nice to see the Yankees come to town. There are normally larger crowds, lots of excitement in the park, and a little bigger spotlight on the games.
Tonight's game features a pitching matchup of young right-handers. Trevor Bauer will start for the Indians and is looking to continue his strong performances of late. Bauer pitched well in relief during the Tribe's 19-inning affair in Toronto and owned a 2.01 ERA in June. He is 7-2 on the year, with 87 strikeouts over 95 1/3 innings.
The Yankees will turn to Ivan Nova, who enters with a 5-5 record and 5.06 ERA. Nova has struggled much of the year, but was solid in his last outing, a 5 1/3 inning, one run performance against the Padres last Saturday.
