The Yankees offense has scored 46 runs with a .241 batting average and a .321 on base percentage. Aaron Judge is batting .333 with four home runs and seven RBI’s for the Yankees. The projected starting pitcher for New York is Gerrit Cole, who is 2-0 with a 0.73 ERA and a 0.89 WHIP over 12.1 innings pitched this year. 

Guardians Preview

The Cleveland Guardians are 7-4 this season and have won two games in a row. Cleveland won Game 1 of this series by a score of 3-2 on Monday. The Cleveland pitching staff has a 3.73 ERA, a 1.16 WHIP, and a .222 opponent batting average. The Guardians offense has scored 53 runs with a .239 batting average and a .333 on base percentage this season. Josh Naylor is batting .216 with two home runs and seven RBI’s for the Guardians. The projected starting pitcher for Cleveland is Hunter Gaddis, who is 0-0 with a 3.72 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP over 9.2 innings pitched this season.


New York is 5-3 in their last 8 games and 38-15 in their last 53 Tuesday games. The under is 4-0 in New York’s last 4 Tuesday games. Cleveland is 10-3 in their last 13 game two’s of a series and 1-4 in their last 5 Tuesday games. The under is 15-5-1 in Cleveland’s last 21 game two’s of a series. The under is 8-1 in these two teams last 9 head to head meetings.


Cleveland managed to win a low scoring Game 1 of this series, but they will have to face Gerrit Cole on Tuesday night. Cole has allowed one run in two starts this year and has struck out 19 batters. Cleveland will turn to Hunter Gaddis, who allowed four runs in his first start to Seattle, but threw 6.0 shutout innings against Oakland in his last start. I am going to back Cole and the Yankees here.
