Texas vs Cleveland Probable Pitchers

The 30-year-old Gray is coming off by far his best start of the season. The 6-foot-4 righty trimmed 0.73 off his ERA in a 4-3 loss to the Rays last Wednesday, going seven innings and allowing only three hits, an earned run and two walks while striking out 12. It was a glimpse of what Texas hoped for when signing the former Colorado stalwart to a four-year, $56 million deal in free agency last November.

This is Jon Gray’s 16th career 10+ K game.

Meanwhile, even though Quantrill has turned in a quality start in six of his last seven outings, Cleveland has only managed a 2-5 record in those turns (with the Guardians posting a 3-6 mark in the 27-year-old’s starts overall). He went 6.1 innings against the Royals last last Tuesday, allowing six hits, three earned runs and no walks while striking out five in an eventual 8-3 victory.

Texas enters Progressive coming off a seven-game home stand that saw the Rangers split a four-game set with the Rays and lose two of three to the Mariners. The team’s big offensive free agent acquisitions — Corey Seager (.232) and Marcus Semien (.196) — are each hitting well-below their expected batting average.

But a bright spot heading into Cleveland could be rookie Ezequiel Duran. The franchise’s  No. 4 overall prospect launched the first long ball of his career on Sunday in a 6-5 loss to the M,s.

As for the Guardians, Francona’s guys took two of three from the Orioles — including a 3-2 win on Sunday, when Andrea Gimenez’s three-run blast provided the Guardians offense with all the runs it needed.

Jose Ramirez has been a legitimate AL MVP candidate, owning a .291/.393/.632 slash line to go along with 14 homers and 53 RBIs.

The Guardians currently have +10000 odds to win the Fall Classic, while the Rangers are at +250000 in the World Series odds.

Rangers vs Guardians Prediction

Gray was a revelation in his last outing. But it’s hard to predict a similar performance is in the offing.

As long as Quantrill can keep Duran at bay, the home team should be in good shape in this spot.

Pick: Guardians ML (-115)
