The Cleveland Guardians are 9-12 this season and have won two games in a row. Cleveland won Game 1 by a score of 9-8 and also won Game 2 by a score of 3-1. The Cleveland pitching staff has a 3.91 ERA, a 1.18 WHIP, and a .236 opponent batting average. The Guardians offense has scored 94 runs with a .251 batting average and a .313 on base percentage. Jose Ramirez is batting .342 with seven home runs and 28 RBI’s for the Guardians this season. The projected starter for Cleveland is Triston McKenzie, who is 0-2 with a 3.71 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP over 17 innings pitched this season.
The Oakland Athletics are 10-11 this season and have lost three of their last four games. Prior to losing Games 1 and 2, Oakland split a two game series with the Giants. The Oakland pitching staff has a 3.56 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and a .232 opponent batting average. The Athletics offense has scored 81 runs with a .212 batting average and a .277 on base percentage this season. Sheldon Neuse is batting .328 with two home runs and 13 RBI’s for the Athletics this year. The projected starter for Oakland is James Kaprielian, who will be making his first appearance of the season.
Cleveland is 7-2 in their last 9 Sunday games and 2-7 in their last 9 games. The over is 7-2 in Cleveland’s last 9 Sunday games. Oakland is 79-29 in their last 108 games against the AL Central and 1-6 in their last 7 games. The under is 17-5 in Oakland’s last 22 Sunday games. Cleveland is 5-11 in these two teams last 16 head to head meetings.
McKenzie has started the season with a pair of losses on his record, but he hasn’t really pitched too badly. The Guardians were really struggling prior to this series, but have taken the first two games and will be going up against a pitcher that has yet to pitch in the majors this season. I like the over in this game as I think both teams will have plenty of scoring opportunities.
