It?s the opening game of a set between a pair of teams that could meet in the American League postseason on the shores of Lake Erie. The New York Yankees play the opening game of a four game set with the Cleveland Indians Thursday night. New York closed out a four game early week set with the Orioles hoping for a split: they fell 6-5 in Tuesday?s contest. Cleveland hoped to avoid a sweep at home in an interleague set with the Reds, losing 7-4 in Tuesday?s game. The Yankees swept a three game set in the first series between the teams this season, which took place in New York May 4-6.
