Cleveland Indians vs. New York Yankees ALDS Game 3 Prediction

The Indians have won the first two games of this series and won Game 2 in dramatic fashion in 13 innings. They have won three in a row and six of their last seven games overall and they have the best record in the AL. The Yankees scored eight runs in Game 2 after being shut out in Game 1, but it was still not enough. Overall, New York has lost three of their last four games. Carrasco has pitched great in his last two outings and he will have another solid start in this playoff game. Tanaka will not get shelled like he was in his lone start against the Indians this season, but he will not shut down the Cleveland lineup. The Indians have all the momentum and they will ride that in this game and with a good outing from Carrasco they will win and complete the series sweep.
