The Seattle Mariners and Cleveland Guardians are set to collide for Game 2 of a four-game series, which will be the second Apple TV game on Friday.

Will the Guardians Hurt the Mariners Wild Card Hopes?

The Cleveland Guardians have continued to be the most consistent team in the AL Central and currently have a four-game lead atop the division standings entering this series. This series is a good measuring stick for Cleveland, who has beaten some lowly competition inside the division of late. Gilbert offers a difficult task on the mound, but Bieber should be able at least make it an even playing field in this pitching matchup. 

Guardians Projected Lineup:

LF Steven Kwan

SS Amed Rosario 

3B Jose Ramirez 

RF Oscar Gonzalez

DH Josh Naylor

1B Owen Miller

2B Tyler Freeman

C Luke Maile

CF Myles Straw

Starting Pitcher: Shane Bieber

Can the Mariners Continue Solid Home Play?

Even with the AL West seemingly out of reach for the Mariners, there’s plenty to be excited about with this squad as they head towards making their first playoff appearance since 2001. Logan Gilbert has had an excellent breakout campaign on the mound for Seattle, but he’s quietly been worse when pitching at home, where he owns a 4.06 ERA. 

Mariners Projected Lineup:

CF Julio Rodriguez

LF Jesse Winker

RF Mitch Haniger

3B Eugenio Suarez

1B Ty France

DH Carlos Santana

SS J.P. Crawford

C Cal Raleigh 

2B Dylan Moore

Starting Pitcher: Logan Gilbert
