Cleveland Guardians vs Colorado Rockies Prediction

I’m on the Guardians here. I know Austin Gomber’s pitching really well and you could easily argue this is the best baseball of his entire career. However, I’ve watched enough Austin Gomber over the course of his career to know that this kind of run that he’s on is slightly unsustainable, or at least it feels like the other shoe is going to drop at some point. Xzavion Curry’s seen limited action this season and that’s a concern as well at Coors, but the Guardians have crushed left-handed pitching in the last couple of weeks and the hitter-friendly nature of Coors is likely going to add to those numbers here. Give me the Guardians.
