Cleveland came away with a huge win on Friday night and now has a four game lead in the AL Central over the White Sox and a five game lead over the Twins. Shane Bieber is starting in Game 1 for Cleveland and I expect the Guardians to win that game by at least two runs. In Game 2, I think Minnesota will get to Pilkington and get the win.
