Cleveland Indians vs New York Yankees Match Preview
The night before they honor the greatest reliever in baseball history, the New York Yankees rode their bullpen to a big win over Cleveland. After paying tribute to newly minted Hall of Famer Mariano Rivera on Saturday, the Yankees will try to top the visiting Indians again when the teams play the third of a four-game series.
Masahiro Tanaka spun 6 1/3 solid innings and watched as three relievers get New York to the finish line in a 3-2 win Friday night, including Tommy Kahnle's back-to-back strikeouts to strand a runner in scoring position to finish the seventh and a 34th save for Aroldis Chapman. Aaron Judge recorded his first multi-hit game in nearly two weeks and scored twice in the victory for the Yankees, who opened a 10 1/2-game lead over second-place Tampa Bay in the American League East. After opening the series with a 19-5 win Friday night, the AL wild card-leading Indians managed four hits against Tanaka and the bullpen. They'll try to give a little more support to rookie Zach Plesac, who starts Saturday opposite lefty James Paxton for New York.
