The Cleveland Guardians will play the Seattle Mariners in Game 1 of their series on Thursday night at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, Washington.
The Cleveland Guardians were 92-70 last season and finished in first place in the AL Central. Cleveland was able to defeated Tampa Bay 2-0 in the Wild Card round, but lost to the Yankees 3-2 in the ALDS. Cleveland went 12-16 during Spring Training this year and didn’t hit or pitch particularly well. The Guardians do have the advantage of playing in the very weak AL Central, so they should have a shot at making the postseason once again. The projected starting pitcher for Cleveland is Shane Bieber, who was 13-8 with a 2.88 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP last year.
The Seattle Mariners were 90-72 last year and finished second in the AL West standings. Seattle defeated Toronto 2-0 in the Wild Card round, but lost 3-0 to the Astros in the ALDS. The Mariners went 14-13 during Spring Training this year and they were middle of the pack with their hitting and pitching. Seattle is another team that has a lot of young talent and they should be exciting to watch again this year. The projected starting pitcher for Seattle is Luis Castillo, who was 8-6 last year with a 2.99 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP.
Cleveland is 19-7 in their last 26 game one’s of a series and 6-0 in their last 6 games against the AL West. The under is 15-5-1 in Cleveland’s last 21 Thursday games. Seattle is 8-2 in their last 10 Thursday games and 2-9 in their last 11 game one’s of a series. The under is 5-1-1 in Seattle’s last 7 game one’s of a series. Cleveland is 1-6 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings in Seattle.
Both of these teams will try to repeat their successful 2022 seasons this year and will look to get off to a winning start in this game. Both starting pitchers were solid last season, so we may see a lower scoring game here. I really like this Seattle team and I think they can make a run at another spot in the postseason, but they will have their hands full with Shane Bieber. I don’t think we are going to see a ton of offense in this game, but I like Seattle to put a couple of runs on the board for the win.
