Who is the Cleveland Guardians probable starting pitcher?

It will be Triston McKenzie taking the mound for the Cleveland Guardians as they look to shake off the loss in extras on Tuesday night. McKenzie has put together two productive starts in a row, allowing just three runs on nine hits in 9 innings against the Oakland Athletics and Boston Red Sox. The length of his starts is still an issue, as he failed to pitch more than 5 innings in either start. 

Of the Houston Astros players who have a chance to play on Wednesday, Jose Altuve has done the most damage against McKenzie. Altuve has five hits in nine at-bats, including two home runs and two doubles. The only other active Astro with more than one hit is Alex Bregman (2-9), with one of his two hits being of the home run variety.

Who will the Cleveland Guardians lineup face?

The comeback tour for Justin Verlander appears to be in full swing, as the Houston Astros starter has allowed just two runs in his first two starts (10.1 innings). While it must be noted that his second start required more pitches to get through fewer innings (95 pitches, 4.1 innings), Verlander still limited the Chicago Cubs to just three hits while preventing any runs from scoring against him. 

There is one player in the Cleveland Guardians lineup with an extensive history of success against Verlander, Jose Ramirez. Ramirez has 12 hits in 37 at-bats lifetime against Verlander, with three home runs and three doubles.
