Why you should back the Guardians

Cleveland has had Minnesota’s number all season, as has center fielder Steven Kwan. Kwan, who was 5-for-11 with a double and three runs scored in Saturday’s doubleheader sweep over the Twins, is hitting .318 on the season against Minnesota pitching. That includes two doubles, one triple and one homer with three RBI for a .424 slugging percentage. For the season, Kwan is batting .289 with four homers, 39 RBIs and 75 runs scored. He should be fresh for Monday’s game after getting a rest day off on Sunday.

Also leading the Guardians’ offense is third baseman Jose Ramirez. Since Sept. 9, he has hits in eight of 11 games, including a 3-for-4 performance against the Twins on Sept. 10. He is batting .281 against Minnesota in 142 career games, including 41 doubles, 21 homers and 69 RBIs. For the season, Ramirez is batting .278 with 28 homers, 112 RBIs and 80 runs scored.

Why you should back the Twins

Minnesota, which is desperate for wins, will send right-hander Sonny Gray (8-4, 2.83 ERA) to the hill. Gray was brilliant in his last start, a 4-0 win over Kansas City. In that outing, he allowed just three hits and one walk, while striking out eight in seven innings of work. For the season, he has struck out 116, while walking 35. In 14 career starts against the Guardians, he is 6-3 with a 3.16 ERA, allowing 28 earned runs, 65 hits and 82 strikeouts against 30 walks in 79 2/3 innings.

Offensively, the Twins’ Carlos Correa has been on a tear with hits in 13 of his past 15 games, including a 3-for-5 performance in Sunday’s 3-0 win. In his last seven games against Cleveland, he is 12-for-32 (.375) with one homer and four RBI. In 50 career games vs. the Guardians, he is hitting .270 with eight doubles, 10 homers and 24 RBI. For the season, Correa is a .283 batter with 21 homers, 58 RBI and 65 runs scored.
