Another Thursday, another series win for the Cleveland Guardians! The Guardians walked into Coors Field looking to take down the Rockies and the Guardians did not disappoint.
This entire series win was fueled by a hungry, young Guardians team that just came together and wouldn’t give up. If you are a baseball fan, then you know how tough it is to play at Coors Field. Coors Field is one of the biggest ball parks, in all of MLB. However, it’s a hitters park and the baseball flys a lot better in Colorado. Coors Field is known for it’s history of long, deep home runs and jaw dropping towering big homers. Even though the Guardians didn’t hit many home runs, the Guardians showed what it’s like to hit base hits and win. Hats off to the entire Cleveland Guardians offense!
The Guardians pitching was a BIG factor in this series win. Both the starting pitcher and relief pitchers, help push the Guardians to victory. Guardians middle-relief pitcher, Eli Morgan, really came through on Thursday night when he came in with the bases loaded, and he pitched a gem to get the Guardians safely out of the inning. The Guardians closer, Emmanuel Clase, ended up with 3 saves and he pitched beautifully. All three series win came on game-ending double-plays, all pitched by Clase. Triston McKenzie pitched great on Thursday and did not allow a home run.
The Guardians roll into Dodgers Stadium with a full head of steam. The Guardians have now won 10 of 13, so they have a lot of momentum on their side. We all know that the Dodgers are a powerhouse, however, the Dodgers have not performed like this year, like they have in recent years. The Guardians should easily be able to walk into Dodgers stadium, give the Dodgers a beat down, then fly home with another series win.
