The Cleveland Guardians and the Seattle Mariners will play the 2nd game of the series at the T-Mobile Park on Friday night. The Mariners took the win 3-1 in the first game of the series. Julio Rodríguez walked to open the game and Jesse Winker singled before Haniger stayed hot at the plate.

Cleveland Guardians

The Guardians get here with a 66-57 record and have won 4 of their last 6 games. They're averaging 4.35 runs and batting for .252 AVG, 531 runs scored in 1050 hits and 99 home runs, ranking #15 in offense, behind the Minnesota Twins. Jose Ramirez leads the team batting for .285 avg, 25 home runs and 103 RBI. 

Defensively they are allowing 4.03 runs per game and ranking #10 in the league. Shane Bieber leads the pitching staff with a 3.10 ERA, 144 strikeouts and 8 wins recorded with the Guardians.

Probable Pitcher:

Shane Bieber (8-7, 3.10 ERA) will be on the mound for the Guardians in the 2nd game of the series. In 6.1 innings of work against the White Sox on Saturday, Bieber suffered the loss after surrendering one earned run on five hits and three walks. He got four outs. He has a record of 1-2 with an ERA of 3.75 and 28 strikeouts in 4 appearances versus the Mariners in his career.


Seattle Mariners

The Mariners get here with a 68-57 record and have lost 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.14 runs per game. They're batting for .232 AVG, 513 runs scored in 958 hits and 139 home runs, ranking #23 in offense in the league, behind the Tampa Bay Rays. Eugenio Suarez leads with 71 RBI and 23 home runs and batting for .229 avg. Ty France has the best batting average with .278.

Defensively are allowing 3.88 runs per game, ranking #7 in the league. Logan Gilbert leads the team with 10 wins and pitching for a 3.52 ERA and 131 strikeouts.

Probable Pitcher:

Logan Gilbert (10-5, 3.52 ERA) will be on the mound for the Mariners in the 2nd game of the series. Gilbert pitched five innings against the Athletics, giving up three runs (two earned) on six hits while striking out four and no walks. He has a 1-1 record with an ERA of 4.22 and 11 strikeouts in 2 appearances against the Cleveland Indians in his career.


Cleveland are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Cleveland's last 7 games when playing on the road against Seattle.

The total has gone OVER in 13 of Seattle's last 20 games against Cleveland.

Seattle Mariners are 9-4 SU in their last 13 games at home.


The Guardians couldn't do much against a strong performance from Marco Gonzales who held them to only 1 run. For this game they'll send Shane Bieber to the mound who has been solid lately allowing 2 or less runs in each of his last 5 starts. The Mariners will send Logan Gilbert to start this game who has struggled in his last 4 starts and the Mariners have lost in 3 of them. This should be another close game but with Gilbert struggling lately I think the Guardians will get him early in the game. Take the Guardians.

PICK: Guardians ML (-110)
