The New York Yankees battle the Cleveland Indians in Game 1 of the series on Monday, April 8, 2013 at 4:05 p.m. ET at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio. Read on to see where fans can watch and listen to a live stream of the Monday afternoon baseball game online and catch up-to-date feeds and coverage on highlight plays and scores.
Heading into the start of Week 2 of the MLB 2013 season, Bleacher Report sports columnist Joel Reuter predicts the season outlook team power rankings. The Yankees head into Monday's game at the no. 23 spot - "For all of the injuries they have had to deal with, and after getting thumped by the Red Sox in the first two games of the season, the Yankees closed out the week on a strong note. They shut out the Tigers 7-0, and CC Sabathia out-dueled Justin Verlander. The Yankees pitching has been rough, putting up a 5.37 ERA as a team. Andy Pettitte was terrific in his first start, going eight and allowing just one run, but the rest of the staff will need to get on track. Offensively, Kevin Youkilis is off to a great start at 9-for-22 with a home run, and Vernon Wells has hit a pair of home runs and driven in four. However, as a whole, the Yankees have a ways to go before they're going to scare anyone."
The Yanks are currently 2-4 having played the Boston Red Sox and Detroit Tigers in Week 1.
The Indians snag the no 17 overall spot (out of 30 teams). According to Reuter, "Starting pitching was the biggest concern for the Indians entering the season. Aside from a terrible start from Brett Myers, they did fairly well in that department in Week 1. Justin Masterson has allowed just five hits and one run while striking out 13 in 13 innings of work. He started the season 2-0 and has looked every bit the part of an ace. Fun fact: He beat both reigning Cy Young winners in R.A. Dickey and David Price to open the season. Catcher Carlos Santana is 12-for-24 to open the season, while Mark Reynolds has four home runs and seven RBI. They had a tough draw in facing the Blue Jays and Rays on the road, and now they play their next 10 games at home.
Cleveland heads into the series against NY with three wins and three losses.
