The San Diego Padres and Cleveland Guardians face off on Wednesday in an MLB showdown at Progressive Field. This will be a doubleheader and we will have a free pick on each of the games. 

The Cleveland Guardians sit with a 10-12 record overall, but they have won three games in a row. In the last two games against the Oakland Athletics, they outscored them 10-4, and they are going to need good pitching again in this game. Jose Ramirez has been the top player for Cleveland hitting seven home runs and driving in 28 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the San Diego Padres who sit with a 15-8 record overall and their last game came against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday. The Padres have won five of their last six games and in each of the six games they have scored at least five runs. Manny Machado has been the top player for Padres hitting four home runs and driving in 16 RBIs.

On the mound for the Padres in Game 1 is Mike Clevinger who will be making his first start of the season. During the 2020 season, he finished with a 2-1 record and an ERA of 2.84. 

On the mound for Cleveland in Game 1 is Zach Plesac who sits with a 1-2 record and an ERA 3.89. 

On the mound for the Padres in Game 2 is MacKenzie Gore who sits with a 2-0 record and an ERA of 1.76. In his last start against the Braves he went 5.1 innings giving up three hits and two runs. 

Getting the start for the Guardians in Game 2 is Cal Quantrill who sits with a 1-1 record and an ERA of 3.27. In his last start against the Los Angeles Angels he went six innings giving up four hits and three runs. 

The Padres are 8-1 in their last nine games against a team with a losing record. Cleveland is 0-6 in their last six interleague games. The under is 9-1 in Quantrill’s last 10 home starts. The over is 6-1 in the Padres last seven games. The over is 6-1 in the Padres last seven interleague road games. 

In Game 1 it’s going to be Padres that get the job done. Clevinger is making his first start of the season, but he is going to get some run support. The Padres have scored at least five runs in each of the last six games. Back the Padres.

In Game 2, I expect runs are going to be very hard to come by. Gore has been lights out this year for the Padres sitting with an ERA of 1.76. Quantrill has been pretty consistent giving up three runs in six innings, and a quality start will be enough to keep this game under the total.
