Our prediction for this game leans towards the Cleveland Guardians to secure the victory. Here's why:

  • The Guardians have the advantage of playing at home, where they boast an impressive 10-5 record. Progressive Field has been a fortress for the Guardians, and they will look to capitalize on their home-field advantage to claim another win.
  • Triston McKenzie, despite his somewhat inconsistent performance this season, has the potential to dominate on the mound. If McKenzie can effectively control the Tigers' lineup and limit their scoring opportunities, the Guardians will be in a strong position to win.
  • Offensively, the Guardians have been productive, with hitters like Josh Naylor and Jose Ramirez leading the charge. Against Jack Flaherty, the Guardians will look to capitalize on scoring opportunities and provide ample run support for McKenzie.
