NY Yankees at Cleveland Indians

I’m loading up on the pinstripes. Masahiro Tanaka is on the hill, and I’d much rather side with his playoff experience than Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco, who is making just his third career postseason game. Either way the pressure will be
on Carrasco, as his team will either be 0-1 in this series, and facing elimination, or 1-0 and having to face an angry Yankees lineup. Tanaka, in either situation, is more suited to handle the pressure with a stellar playoff career to his credit. The right-hander owns a 1.76 ERA with 37 strikeouts in eight playoff starts dating back to 2015. He has stifled opponents to a .157 average in the playoffs. TAKE: YANKEES -125

The Red Sox are coming off back to back

The Yankees are going with a bullpen pitching staff today, which means they are sending reliever after reliever to the mound instead of opening with a traditional starter. Washington certainly won’t mind that after it bounced back from Thursday’s rain-delayed loss with a
