The New York Yankees are undeniably one of the greatest teams in baseball. They hold some of the toughest records around, and have some of the best players on the face of the earth on their roster. However, this is baseball we are talking about, and nothing is ever set in stone until the game is over. The Yankees came up dry against the Cleveland Indians in what many will call one of the biggest upsets of the season. It ended 4-1, and thousands of fans were dismayed as the Yankees failed to pull off a victory.
Cleveland has been surprising all season, they have had some moments of brilliance over the past few months, and are looking good again as they snatch a game from the biggest juggernaut in baseball. The Yankees have had some recent turmoil to overcome, with the death of their long time owner, their ace pitcher out on an injury, and Alex Rodriguez taking a shard blow to the hand.
The Indians stuck to some very solid, clean baseball. They kept their chins up and gritted out nine innings of unbelievable improbabilities. Josh Tomlin took a shutout game well into the last innings of the game. It wasn’t until the eighth that the Yankees managed to score. He won his major league debut with the Cleveland Indians against one of the most explosive batting lineups in baseball.
His teammates were ecstatic as Tomlin kept making the Yanks strike out, they were incredulous as the innings rolled by, and the best hitters in baseball came up dry against a young guy with not much of a history behind him. Team manager Manny Acta stated that he did exactly what they needed, pound the strike zone and win games.
International star Alex Rodriguez stands poised on the threshold of baseball immortality. He is one swing away from a 600th home run, yet fans and the history books will have to wait as he went 0 for 4 on his 35th birthday. Be sure and follow the Indians and the Yankees as they keep breaking records. As always www.scoresandodds.com is the best place for you to get all the baseball betting information you need.
