Featured Game | Cleveland Guardians vs. Oakland Athletics

Why you should back the Athletics 

Oakland’s run prevention should be strong on Sunday behind the left arm of Cole Irvin. The 28-year-old starting pitcher boasts a 3.00 ERA during the 2022 season, and Irvin has not allowed more than three runs since his first start of the campaign. Irvin has a sparkling 2.29 ERA in the last seven starts, including a six-inning gem earlier this season against Cleveland. 

Irvin allowed only one run in that outing, and he has impressive command, issuing only 2.1 walks per nine innings in 2022. Irvin is particularly potent against left-handed batters, allowing only a .620 OPS this season, and Cleveland currently ranks in the bottom five of the American League with only 46 home runs.

Why you should back the Guardians 

Cleveland’s offense has notable strengths, helping to lead the Guardians to a 9-3 record in the last 12 games. The Guardians lead the American League with a 17.9 percent strikeout rate this season, and Cleveland is No. 2 in the AL with 13 triples. The Guardians are in the top five of the league in batting average (.248), and they are active on the base paths with 37 stolen bases. 

Jose Ramirez is one of the game’s best hitters, anchoring Cleveland’s lineup with 16 home runs, nine stolen bases, and a blistering .644 slugging percentage. Ramirez has 33 walks and only 17 strikeouts this season, and he is devastating to opposing pitchers. Cleveland should also benefit from Oakland’s porous bullpen, with A’s relievers posting an unsightly 4.58 ERA this season and giving away 4.21 walks per nine innings. In contrast, the Guardians rank in the top five of the AL in bullpen ERA (2.93) and lead the league in strikeout rate with more than a strikeout per inning.
