Who is the Cleveland Guardians probable starting pitcher?

After dropping Game 1 in Detroit by the slimmest of margins, the Cleveland Guardians will entrust Ben Lively to get them back to even in their four-game set with the Tigers. The Guardians are 7-3 in Lively's last 10 starts, a stretch that has seen him give up more than three runs only once. Cleveland should be in good shape with Lively on the mound, considering he continues to prove that his performance on the mound is not a fluke with each subsequent start.

Who will the Cleveland Guardians lineup face?

Kenta Maeda will start for Detroit as they look to secure at least a series split in their second game with the Guardians. This will be Maeda's second start against Cleveland this season, giving up seven runs on five hits and three walks in just 2 innings back in early May. Surprisingly, Detroit ended up winning that contest due to Logan Allen somehow pitching worse than Maeda (seven runs on seven hits and two walks in 2.1 innings).

Guardians hitters have a lifetime .304/.391/.589/.980 super slash against Maeda in 56 previous at-bats. Maeda has given up 10 extra-base hits in those matchups, with Josh Naylor's two doubles and one home run leading the way. There is a very good chance that Cleveland's offense is able to match their previous outing and should hopefully lead to a win this time around with Lively on the mound.
