Who is the Cleveland Guardians probable starting pitcher?

It will be Carlos Carrasco taking the mound for the Cleveland Guardians on Wednesday as they look to complete the sweep of the reigning World Series Champion Texas Rangers. Carrasco will need to have a better outing than his last start, as he gave up three runs (five total) on six hits in 7 innings against the lowly Chicago White Sox. Texas is a much better team than Chicago and can easily match or exceed those totals in a shorter amount of time. 

There are only three Rangers hitters with more than five at-bats against Carrasco. Robbie Grossman's 5-15 line with two doubles leads the way, while Corey Seager has two hits in seven at-bats. Marcus Semien has not experienced as much luck as those two, going just 2-17 with seven strikeouts.

Who will the Cleveland Guardians lineup face?

In an effort to avoid being swept, Texas is turning to Jon Gray for Wednesday's matchup. Gray has been locked in since giving up five runs in a loss to the Chicago Cubs in his first start. Since then, Gray has allowed seven runs in 42 innings, with more than one run allowed happening just once. 

A few Guardians hitters have found success against Gray in the past. Josh Naylor is 5-12 with a double and a home run. Austin Hedges also has five hits, including two doubles, but has struck out five times in 22 at-bats. Meanwhile, Ramon Laureano is 3-9 with a double. Surprisingly, Jose Ramirez is hitless in nine at-bats against Gray.
