Probable Pitcher: Gerrit Cole (13-8, 3.50 ERA)
Cole will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Yankees. Cole took the loss in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rangers, giving up three runs (two earned) on six hits over six innings. He struck out nine without walking a batter. He has a record of 5-2 with an ERA of 3.15 and 60 strikeouts in 8 appearances versus the Guardians in his career.
The Guardians get here with a 94-70 record and have won 5 of their last 6 games. They're averaging 4.27 runs and batting for .254 AVG, 698 runs scored in 1410 hits and 127 home runs, ranking #18 in offense, behind the Minnesota Twins. Jose Ramirez leads the team batting for .285 avg, 29 home runs and 126 RBI.
Defensively they are allowing 3.87 runs per game and ranking #8 in the league. Shane Bieber leads the pitching staff with a 2.88 ERA, 198 strikeouts and 13 wins recorded with the Guardians.
Probable Pitcher: Cal Quantrill (15-5, 3.38 ERA)
Quantrill will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Guardians. Quantrill earned the win Tuesday over Kansas City, striking out four in five innings while allowing a run on four hits. He has an ERA of 3.38 and 3 strikeouts in 4 appearances against the Yankees in his career.
Cleveland are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games.
Cleveland are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games against NY Yankees.
Cleveland are 9-0 SU in their last 9 games on the road.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Cleveland's last 5 games when playing on the road against NY Yankees
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of NY Yankees' last 5 games.
NY Yankees are 12-5 SU in their last 17 games.
The total has gone OVER in 13 of NY Yankees' last 20 games against Cleveland.
NY Yankees are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games at home.
The Guardians managed to win the first 2 games of the Wild Card Series eliminating the Rays but scored only 3 runs total. Cal Quantrill will start for the Guardians who was pretty solid at the end of the season allowing only 1 run per game in his last 3 starts and the Guardians have won in 16 of his last 17 starts. The Yankees are well rested and will have all of their best players in the lineup including Matt Carpenter who's ready to go. Gerrit Cole will take the mound who has been up and down in the season but is #1 in strikeouts in the MLB with 257 and has dominated the Guardians this season. With the Guardians struggling offensively and the Yankees lineup loaded I think they can win this game at home. Take the Yankees.
