The Cleveland Guardians and Texas Rangers face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Globe Life Field. The Guardians have won the first two games of this series. 

The Guardians come into this game with an 85-67 record overall and on Saturday they used another strong pitching performance to secure the victory. The Guardians' strength this season has been the pitching and they are giving up 3.93 runs per game which is 9th best in the league. The offense is ranked 17th in baseball. Jose Ramirez has hit 28 home runs and driven in 117 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Rangers who sit with a 65-86 record overall and they have lost two games in a row. Over the last two games, the offense has scored only five runs total, and they need better pitching here. The Rangers pitching hasn’t been great this season giving up 4.59 runs per game which is 22nd in the league. Corey Seager has hit 32 home runs and driven in 82 RBIs. 

On the mound for the Guardians will be Aaron Ciavle who sits with a 2-6 record and an ERA of 5.29. In his last start against the White Sox, he went five innings giving up four hits and two runs. 

On the mound for the Rangers will Cole Ragans who sits with an 0-2 record and an ERA of 5.30. In his last start against the Los Angeles Angels, he went 4.2 innings giving up seven hits and two runs. 

The Guardians are 4-0 in their last four games during game 3 of a series. The under is 7-1 in Civale’s last eight starts on grass. The under is 6-0 in Civale’s last six starts against a team with a losing record. 

The ERA’s a bit deceiving for both of the starting pitchers in this game. Civale and Ragans were both good in the last game, and I expect both offenses are going to struggle in this game. I don’t see either team scoring more than four runs in this game, and this game is going to stay under the total. 

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