New York Mets vs Cleveland Guardians Prediction

I’ll stay with Cleveland. McKenzie is pitching well over his last three starts, even though he’s 0-1 in that time. In that trio McKenzie has three earned runs on nine hits and 10 walks in 18.1 combined frames. As for Quintana, he’s given up 14 earned over his last 18.0 innings combined.

On Tuesday the Guardians gave up a ton of hits (11) and had to go through seven different pitchers but everything worked out well in the end. McKenzie may need to go deep into this one in order to give the pen a rest but Cleveland should have a good shot at a W.
