Preview

The Oakland Athletics and the Cleveland Guardians will play the 3rd game of the series at the Progressive Field on Saturday. The Guardians stole the win to the A's 3-2 on Friday night. José Ramírez doubled twice, then homered to begin a three-run rally in the bottom of the ninth inning to take the win.

Oakland Athletics

The Athletics get here with a 20-40 record and have lost their last 10 games. The team is averaging 3.25 runs per game and allowing 4.52 runs. Elvis Andrus is batting for .242 AVG. Sean Murphy leads with 23 RBI and 5 home runs.

Paul Blackburn leads the team with a 2.62 ERA, 44 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded for the A's.

Probable Pitcher:  Frankie Montas (2-6, 3.06 ERA)

Montas will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Athletics. Montas allowed 4 runs (one earned) on 6 hits and 1 walk with 7 strikeouts across 6 innings taking the loss during Sunday's 5-2 defeat vs the Red Sox. In his last start against the Guardians he allowed 5 runs and struck out 6 across 5 innings pitched.

Cleveland Guardians

The Guardians get here with a 28-26 record and have won 5 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 4.6 runs per game and allowing 4 runs. Jose Ramirez leads the team batting for .285 avg, 15 home runs and 55 RBI. 

Shane Bieber leads the pitching staff with a 2.91 ERA, 68 strikeouts and 3 wins recorded for the Guardians.

Probable Pitcher:  Zach Plesac (2-4, 4.72 ERA)

Plesac will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Guardians. Plesac gave up 2 runs on 4 hits and no walks while striking out 8 across 6 innings to earn the win during Sunday's game against the Orioles. He has given up 2 runs on 4 hits with 1 walk and 3 strikeouts in 6 innings versus the Athletics in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

Oakland are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games against Cleveland.

Oakland are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

Cleveland are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games at home.

Cleveland are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games when playing at home against Oakland.

Prediction

The Guardians were dominated by Blackburn the whole game but in the 9th inning the Guardians scored 3 runs to steal them the win. Frankie Montas will start for the A's and although he has been really good lately the A's have lost in his last 9 starts. The Athletics offense has been terrible and they'll face Plesac who allowed only 2 runs the last time they met. It's hard to trust on the A's but I think Montas will be good on this game so I'm taking the under.

PICK: Under 8 (-110)
