Cleveland Guardians vs LA Angels Prediction

I’m on the Guardians here. I’ve simply taken the mindset of if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it with the Guardians. Cleveland continues to play consistent and fundamental baseball, and I trust the Guardians across the board a lot more than I do the Angels, who I feel are playing a bit above their pay grade given all the injuries to this team. The Guardians have solid pitching and solid relief arms as well, and I think Cleveland gets another W over the Halos on Saturday. Give me Cleveland here.
