Sonny Gray will look to get his fourth win of the season this Monday when he gets the ball for Game 1 of this series against the Guardians. Gray got tagged for 3 earned runs on 8 hits in just 4.0 innings in his last start – an 11-10 home loss to the Guardians last week. He did look much better than that in a prior start on the road versus the Seattle Mariners in which he pitched 5.0 innings of zero-run ball. On the season, Gray owns a 3-1 record with a 2.53 ERA and 1.03 ERA. The Twins have also lost just once in Gray’s last seven appearances, including the 12-8 victory over Cleveland at home last May, where he allowed 2 earned runs on 4 hits while striking out 8 Guardians.
Betting on the Cleveland Guardians (+1.5)
Regular Season Record: 36-32
Triston McKenzie is hoping that the Guardians’ offense will have his back again. McKenzie was the one who started for Cleveland the last time the Guardians faced off with Gray, getting away with a no-decision despite allowing 6 earned runs on 9 hots in 4.1 innings. If anything, the Guardians are 3-0 in the last three starts of McKenzie, who enters this game with a 4-5 record and a 3.51 ERA. On the season, McKenzie is enjoying quite a healthy amount of run support, with Cleveland hitters providing him with 5.3 runs per nine innings. The 24-year-old McKenzie is 1-0 with a 2.76 ERA and a .170 opponents’ batting average in 3 home starts this year.
The Twins win, 7-4.
