Yankees vs Indians live stream: how to watch MLB 2021 online
Cleveland is looking to heap yet more misery on the Yankees, who are having a horrific season so far – despite a come-from-behind renaissance yesterday. Having been widely tipped to challenge the Dodgers, the Yanks have instead spent much of the campaign rooted to the bottom of the AL East, with their tally of defeats already in double figures. Read on as we explain how to watch the Yankees vs Indians games online and live stream today’s MLB action on the ESPN Plus streaming service.
The Bronx Bombers are absolutely not living up to their nickname, with their dreadful overall form largely down to their toothless offense, which has been performing way below the level expected.
Terry Francona’s men, meanwhile, were swept by New York at the Wild Card Series stage of last season’s playoffs, and they’ll certainly have revenge on their minds for this four-game series. Cleveland’s form has, however, been patchy of late, with their four-game hot streak in early April followed by almost perfectly alternating defeats and victories. And the Yanks will be buoyed by their (eventually) convincing win on Thursday.
There’s a lot riding on this one, so whether you’re a Yankees fan in New York, an Indians fan in Cleveland or just an MLB follower wanting to watch the baseball at Progressive Field, we’ll show you how to get a high-quality MLB live stream of the Yankees vs Indians game.
