Cleveland Guardians Preview
It’s never good to lose the first game of a series, but there are plenty of positives to take from this game for the Cleveland Guardians. Although they only scored one run, they actually outhit the Yankees six to five. The only problem was four of their six hits came from Steven Kwan and Jose Ramirez. Simply put, if Cleveland has to rely this heavily on the bats of two players, they don’t stand a chance in this series.
Cal Quantrill pitched well in Game 1, however, the Yankees simply capitalized on the few mistakes he made. The bullpen held up admirably but Cleveland already has a lot to make up for in terms of the talent disparity between these two teams. The bullpen needs to continue to be virtually flawless to be able to push back in New York.
New York Yankees Preview
It was well known that most games in this series would become pitcher duels. In Game 1 that is exactly what happened, and the New York Yankees found themselves on the winning end of it. The Yankees again relied on the long ball as three of their four runs came from it. Facing off against Shane Bieber in Game 2, they’ll have their hands full in finding a way to support starter Nestor Cortes.
Starter Gerrit Cole got himself into some trouble multiple times in Game 1 but fought out of it both times. Gerrit Cole was able to go 6 1/3 innings while the bullpen finished off the rest of the game while only giving up two hits. If the bullpen can continue its current form, they have a great chance to take a 2-0 series lead assuming Cortes doesn’t implode.
