On Friday, a full slate of MLB Playoffs 2017 games will take place including a batch of Game 2s in the American League. The new york yankees will be in Game 2 against the AL-best Cleveland Indians. The first game of the series saw New York completely shut out, so they'll certainly be looking for much more run production in Friday's outing. Here's the latest Yankees vs. Indians preview including matchup odds, starting pitchers, TV start time, channel, and live stream options.

MLB game preview

The Cleveland Indians' Game 1 win came down to excellent pitching. Trevor Bauer had the start and delivered what was called "the game of his life" by some analysts as the Indians won 4-0.

Rookie Aaron Judge was held to an 0-for-4 performance for the NY Yankees. Four of those strikeouts were due to Bauer being on the mound. Meanwhile, the Indians received the majority of their runs from right fielder Jay Bruce. He went 2-for-3 with three RBI and two runs scored himself. That included a fourth-inning home run off Sonny Gray to add to the team's lead.

For Game 2, the Cleveland Indians will send their 18-game winner Corey Kluber to the mound. Kluber was the Cy Young Award winner in 2014. Kluber finished the season with an 18-4 record to go with a 2.25 ERA and 265 strikeouts. On the other side, the New York Yankees will send their own pitcher, who is also a former Cy Young winner: CC Sabathia. The Yankees ace went 14-5 this past season with a 3.69 ERA and 120 strikeouts.

The odds for Friday's Game 2 favor the home team once again.
