Cleveland has the Junior Circuit's best pitcher in Corey Kluber, but he won't pitch until Game 2 of this series. Teams that win Game 1 of best-of-five series win the series 71 percent of the time.
Yankee fans are exuding the same confidence the team is before Tuesday night's wild-card game against the Minnesota Twins. Carlos put together a very solid year (18-6, 3.29 ERA, 226 K's), and is more than capable of altering the course of a series.
Over at Progressive Field on Thursday, the American League Division Series will be kicking off with Game 1 in a matchup between the New York Yankees and the Cleveland Indians. Against New York this season, Bauer went 2-0 with a 1.38 ERA and Kluber was 2-0 with a 1.59 ERA. Aside from one start, he lasted at least six innings and didn't allow more than two earned runs in any of those outings. NY went 51-30 at home, best in the AL, while the Indians were 49-32 at home and 53-28 on road. "It's been awhile since I've seen the Yanks in a playoff chase, since 2012". There is no doubt that the Cleveland bullpen will be more ready to go in Game 1, and we already covered the opener's significance. All four pitchers excelled at the task forced upon them, but they were not the only ones who were brilliant.

This game will be huge for the Yankees, plain and simple. After getting tantalizingly close in 2016, Cleveland will attempt to end a 68-year World Series title drought, the longest active dry spell in baseball. Cleveland excels at limiting home runs.
The Indians come into the game with the best record in the American League, 102-60, having won 34 of their last 38 games, a streak that included their American League-record, 22-game winning streak. Cleveland finished the 2017 regular season winning 33 of their final 37 games. Both Cleveland and NY are very well-rounded clubs with extremely good bullpens, and very deep lineups. They have undeniable chemistry, confidence, All-Stars galore and in Francona, a manager who knows how to win in October. NY threw 53 wild pitches when Sanchez was behind the plate, second-most among major league catchers behind Jonathan Lucroy (58 with Texas and Colorado).
