They were swept in a shocking three-game series at Oakland at the end of last week before taking three out of four against the Mariners.


Even if they don’t have the greatest records of all right now, the Guardians continue to try to contend in the American League Central. They took 2 out of 3 at Tampa Bay before winning 2 out of 3 against Arizona. Cleveland is 2nd in the American League Central, trailing Minnesota by one game. They are sitting 1 game back of Tampa Bay for the final spot in the AL Wild Card standings.


Zach Plesac is making his 20th start of the season for the Cleveland Guardians. He is carrying a 2-9 record with a 4.33 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP over 104 innings pitched while striking out 79. He’s going up against one of the Astros’ best, Justin Verlander. After 19 starts this season, Verlander holds a 14-3 record with a 1.81 ERA and a 0.87 WHIP over 124 innings pitched while striking out 122.
