We discuss how to watch yankees game today between the Cleveland Guardians and New York Yankees and offer our predictions.
On Saturday, the New York Yankees and Cleveland Guardians will play, with the first pitch scheduled for 12:10 p.m. ET. The only ways to watch the game, which takes place at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio, are on local TV or by subscribing to MLB.tv. The Yankees’ scheduled starter Gerrit Cole will no longer take the mound for this game due to Friday’s postponement. The Guardians have chosen to start left-handed rookie Kirk McCarty in the second game of today’s doubleheader in place of Aaron Civale.
The Yankees (56-21) have “only” gone 7-5 in their last 12 games, putting them in a recent relative funk. To put it another way, they have defeated every team but the Astros 21-3 since May 31. In his last seven games, Giancarlo Stanton has 10 RBIs and five home runs. When these two teams faced off in the Bronx in April, Cole pitched 6.2 innings without allowing a run while striking out nine (a three-game Yankees sweep).
The Guardians (39-34) are hoping to build on any momentum they may have gained from their two recent walk-off victories. With a three-run home run on Thursday, Andres Gimenez scored the winning run. Over his last 27 games, he has hit.337 with five home runs and 17 RBIs. As a major leaguer, McCarty has made two appearances: one start and one relief appearance. On April 24 against the Yankees, he made that relief appearance in his first MLB game. He pitched three innings and gave up four runs. Then, on June 7, he lost to the Rangers after giving up eight hits and four earned runs.

Yankees vs. Guardians
Odds, picks & predictions
Run Line: Yankees -1.5 (-180)
Run total: 8.5
Moneyline odds: Yankees -320, Guardians +265
Moneyline pick: Yankees -320
Yeah, this probably won’t be pretty for Cleveland. They are sending out a rookie pitcher who has allowed five homers in seven innings this year to face the team that leads the world in home runs. And he’ll have to match one of the best pitchers in the game. Take the Guardians at your own peril.
Player prop pick: Giancarlo Stanton OVER 0.5 home runs
Given McCarty’s proclivity for giving up dingers, a Yankees homer player prop seems appropriate today. There are plenty of options here — Aaron Judge, Gleyber Torres, even DJ LeMahieu, who did homer against McCarty back in April. But let’s side with the elite slugger who has been on somewhat of a home run tear recently.
