American League matchup
How to watch, what to watch for on April 22nd of the 2021 MLB regular season ⚾
The New York Yankees are still playing like one of the worst teams in MLB and will attempt to gain some momentum against the Cleveland Indians in an American League matchup. The Yankees have been suspect at the plate, but their lineup is as talented as any. Aaron Civale is on a tear and boasts a 3-0 record and 0.73 WHIP in 2021, so he’ll make things tough for the visitors. Another good matchup to watch is the budding, West Coast Rivalry between the Padres and Dodgers. Los Angeles is 2-1 against San Diego this year, but the Padres have a chance to even things up on Thursday to kick off the four-game series on a high note. We’ll get to see two young pitchers — Walker Buehler and Ryan Weathers — duke it out. Buehler is the more established player of the two, but Weathers has impressed in his age-21 season. He’s given up three hits and one earned run in 9 2⁄3 innings.
