New York Yankees vs. Cleveland Indians

Yankees: 57-49 (25-29 V)
Indians: 57-48 (28-24 H)
When: 7:10 PM ET, Thursday, August 3, 2017
Where: Progressive Field, Cleveland, Ohio

The New York Yankees will attempt to get back into the win column with Sonny Gray on the mound as they get ready to begin a seven-game road trip which will land them in Ohio for a four-game series against the Cleveland Indians with the opener set to be staged Thursday night at Progressive Field in Cleveland. This will be the first of two series between the two AL belligerents. The Bronx Bombers took five of their seven contests against the Indians last season.

The Yankees ended what was a most successful home stand on a sour and soggy note when they lost their last two games against the Tigers with their latest setback ending well into the night as rain wreaked havoc in a matinee start. Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann and two of his acolyte relievers kept the Yankees’ batters at bay most of the game with a 2-0 win in the finale on Wednesday.

While the Yankees had to endure almost 5 hours of rain delays in the loss, the Indians were caught in the same inclement pattern in Boston but never had the chance to trample the field as their finale was postponed in Boston on Wednesday. The Indians will have one more day to digest their brutal 12-10 loss to the Red Sox on Tuesday as they head back home for the series and will look to snap a three-game losing streak.

RH Sonny Gray (6-5, 3.43 ERA) will make his debut for the Yankees in the series’ opener while RH Corey Kluber (8-3, 2.90 ERA) looks to rebound from a subpar performance as he takes the hill for the Indians.

Gray, who was acquired by the Yankees for three prospects at the trade deadline, will make his Yankees debut in the opener in Cleveland. Gray, 27, who spent his entire career in Oakland, said it was a dream come true to play for the Pinstripes but how he will handle the New York pressure remains to be seen. Gray takes the mound after posting five straight quality starts in which he went 3-2 with an impressive 1.37 ERA. The Tennessee native is 3-2 with 3.43 ERA in 7-career starts against the Indians.

Kluber gave up four runs - his highest total in a span of 11 starts - in a no-decision at the Chicago White Sox his last time out. He fanned 12 batters and has an eye-popping 120 strikeouts in 77 1/3 innings since coming off the disabled list in June. The former Cy Young Award winner has a 1.91 ERA in five career starts against the Yankees and has dominated New York newcomer Todd Frazier (2-for-23, nine strikeouts).

Mybookie Sportsbook has the Indians favorites at 160-moneyline with the total sitting at 8.

MLB Runline Odds at BetOnline the Indians were favored by -1½ (+135)

Pitching Matchup:
Yankees: RH Sonny Gray (6-5, 3.43 ERA)
