Seattle Mariners vs Cleveland Guardians Prediction

I’ll stick with the Guardians. Allen had a rough start at Coors Field to finish off May, giving up seven earned in 1.2 innings. Since then Allen is 1-0 with three earned in 11.0 innings over two starts, though. As for Castillo, he’s 2-1 over his last three starts with seven earned in 18.0 total innings (five in one start).

On Wednesday the Guardians were up 3-0 after two innings and cruised to the win on a big offensive effort. Josh Naylor contributed four RBI and two homers by himself. Cleveland probably won’t plate as many this time but they should be in great shape overall for another win.
