The Yankees won Saturday by taking advantage of mistakes.

Cleveland is hoping Josh Tomlin (0-4, 9.16 ERA) can turn around his season by picking up his first win, as he was better on the road a year ago. The tag out should've ended the inning and kept a run off the board. He is 2-0 through six starts with a 2.82 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP.

Cleveland's Mike Clevinger allowed a single to Hicks in the fifth and set a career-high with 10 strikeouts while allowing two runs in 7 1/3 innings. Clevinger has only conceded two home runs on the season. Ramirez is slashing.291/.379/.575 with nine home runs, 21 RBIs and 21 runs scored, while Lindor (.284/.353/.518) is up to eight homers, 19 RBIs, 25 runs and five stolen bases.

Ramirez went 3 for 4 with one homer and two RBI's in Friday's loss to the Yankees.

NY has recorded 19.2 Runs + Hits + Errors per game over its last 10 contests and 20.8 over its last five. It's their longest stretch of consecutive days with a game this season.

Domino German gets the start for the Yankees on Sunday. This will mark his first career meeting against the Indians. German has pitched 14.1 innings and has 18 strikeouts with seven walks.

Among those waiting for Sonny Gray to deliver an effective start, New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone might be his most vocal advocate. Judge is now hitting.305 with eight home runs and 21 RBI's on the season. Trevor Bauer, Francisco Lindor and the Indians have found that out the last two days at Yankee Stadium.

Gary Sanchez did not play because he's a catcher and it was a day game after a night game. They own a terrific 3.48 team ERA, good for seventh in the Major Leagues.

The Indians have lost three of their last four games SU while the Yankees have won 14 of their last 15 SU. NY is now 23-10 overall and 13-5 at home.

30-12 in their last 42 road games. Cleveland is 0-5 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams. The only one that's not a good job is me and I put that on me. This will be his first start of the season.

Torres, who connected for his first big league homer Friday night, raised one arm and turned back toward the NY dugout after rounding first base.

The Indians offense has slashed.244/.314/.424 on its way to 4.6 runs scored per game in 2018, including 7.1 runs per game over the team's last 10 games and 8.8 per game over the team's last five contests (2-3 SU).

Domingo German tossed four scoreless innings in relief when Jordan Montgomery left his last start with an elbow strain.
