Analysis
At 1:10 pm, our selection is on the Minnesota Twins over the Cleveland Guardians. For those thinking the AL Central would be a runaway this season for the Chicago White Sox, think again. What has developed over the first half of the season is a three-way battle between the Twins, Guardians, and ChiSox, with the Twins and Guardians getting the better of their more talented -- and better funded -- rival. Cleveland has won the first two games of this series, so it's now tied with Minnesota atop the division. RHP Zach Plesac goes to the mound this afternoon for his 13th start of the season for Cleveland. Plesac had a solid 2021 and he's following that up with a similar campaign this year -- albeit a bit more frustrating so far. Plesac has been a bit snake-bit recently, throwing quality starts in each of his last four outings but coming away with just one victory to show for his efforts. Additionally, he's been shelled by the Twins in his last two outings against them (8 1/3 innings; 8 ER, 14 baserunners). Minnesota will counter with lefty Devin Smeltzer, who has faced the Guardians once earlier this season. He was effective, as he gave up just 1 ER over five innings. Minnesota has won all 5 of Smeltzer's daytime starts in his career, and is 19-13 in the daytime this season. Take the Twins. As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
