Cleveland Guardians vs. New York Yankees (-150, 7.5)
The start for the Guardians goes to Aaron Civale, who has registered a 4.92 ERA this season while dealing with two separate injured list stints. He’s also made just four starts since the beginning of September.
The Yankees give the start to Jameson Taillon, who has already made an appearance in this series, giving up two runs in the 10th inning of the team’s Game 2 loss.
Fellow regular season starter Domingo German will likely spell Taillon and both are prone to allowing the deep ball, with each surrendering about 1.3 home runs per nine innings as well as German supplying a 3.61 ERA and Taillon a 3.91 ERA.
The Yankees lead the league in home runs and New York is the only American League team averaging more than five runs per game at home this season.
The Yankees and Guardians will have all hands on deck for a do-or-die Game 5, but with both bullpens likely in for a long night, it will be a series finale that includes offensive fireworks.
