Yankees Look To Bounce Back Versus Indians After Conceding AL East Lead

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 6/3/2013 7:26:20 PM

All it took was one series for the New York Yankees to drop three games back of the lead in their online sports betting division. That is life in the American League East. The Yankees dropped consecutive games to the Boston Red Sox over the weekend, allowing their biggest rivals to move three games up on them while the Baltimore Orioles moved in to second. New York will look to bounce back this week and retake the division lead, beginning with the final two of a three-game set against the Cleveland Indians.

The Indians on the other hand are just looking to stop the bleeding after losing seven of their last 10, a skid that has allowed the Detroit Tigers to move past them in to first in the AL Central. Cleveland is still just one-half game back of the Tigers for the division lead, but they have a sub-.500 road record this season and are struggling to get going. Scott Kazmir is coming off his best outing of the year in a win over the Cincinnati Reds, but his ERA is still hovering above 5.00. David Phelps hasn’t been much better for the Yankees though, and he is coming off his worst start of the season having allowed four earned runs in just 0.1 innings of work against the New York Mets. Phelps should bounce back with a better performance, but New York is struggling right now and if Kazmir pitches the way he did in his last outing then it should be enough to help the Indians to steal an online betting victory.

Even CC Sabathia hasn’t been the same as old of late, including an 0-2 record and 4.86 ERA over his previous five starts before buckling down in a sports betting win over the Boston Red Sox. Sabathia allowed just one earned run and six hits over 7.1 innings of work, striking out 10 and taking the Yankees on his back for a win against their biggest rivals. New York will need a similar performance from Sabathia in this game, with Corey Kluber on the mound for the Indians. Kluber is 3-3 with a 4.36 ERA, and Cleveland has lost the last three games that he has started. Kluber hasn’t been terrible in any of those starts, but the bullpen and offense have both been inconsistent and that could happen again with Sabathia on the mound for a desperate Yankees’ team looking to get back in the win column. The AL East should come down to the wire this season with the Red Sox and Orioles both in the mix against New York, and the Yankees need to buckle down now and find a way to grind out some important wins to get back on track.
