The Cleveland Guardians will play the Detroit Tigers in Game 2 of their series at Comerica Park on Wednesday night.

The Cleveland Guardians are 57-52 this season and have won three games in a row. Cleveland won Game 1 of this series by a score of 5-2 on Tuesday night. The Cleveland pitching staff has a 3.88 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and a .240 opponent batting average this season. The Guardians offense has scored 473 runs with a .252 batting average and a .314 on base percentage. Jose Ramirez is batting .284 with 21 home runs and 87 RBI’s for the Guardians this season. The projected starter for Cleveland is Aaron Civale, who is 2-5 with a 6.17 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP over 54 innings pitched this season.

The Detroit Tigers are 43-68 this season and have lost five of their last six games. Prior to losing Game 1 of this series, Detroit lost three out of the four games in their series against Tampa Bay. The Detroit pitching staff has a 4.06 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP, and a .246 opponent batting average. The Tigers offense has scored 356 runs with a .226 batting average and a .283 on base percentage this year. Javier Baez is batting .220 with 10 home runs and 43 RBI’s for the Tigers this season. The projected starter for Detroit is Drew Hutchison, who is 1-5 with a 4.37 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP over 55.2 innings pitched this season.

Cleveland is 7-2 in their last 9 Wednesday games and 6-2 in their last 8 games against the AL Central. The over is 5-1-1 in Cleveland’s last 7 Wednesday games. Detroit is 7-21 in their last 28 games and 2-13 in their last 15 games against the AL Central. The under is 6-2-2 in Detroit’s last 10 Wednesday games. Cleveland is 67-25 in these two teams last 92 head to head meetings.

Cleveland remains right in the middle of the AL Central battle, along with Minnesota and Chicago, and cannot afford to drop any games against a lowly Detroit team. Cleveland will be starting Aaron Civale, who is coming off of the IL. Prior to Civale’s trip to the IL, he had allowed five runs in his previous 14 innings. For Detroit, Drew Hutchison has allowed seven earned runs in his last 15.1 innings. I like the over in this game with neither pitcher having a very good season.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
