2022 MLB Playoffs — ALDS Game 3 (Series Tied 1-1)

The ALDS round of the 2022 MLB Playoffs continues on Saturday with Game 3 between the No. 2 New York Yankees and No. 3 Cleveland Guardians. Despite taking the 1-0 series lead, the Yankees couldn't capitalize on their momentum in Game 2, falling 4-2 to the Guardians in the 10-inning affair.

Can the Yankees figure out a way to bounce back on the road? Or will the Guardians find out a way to do the unthinkable and take the 2-1 series lead?

Yankees vs Guardians Prediction & Pick

The Guardians gave the Yankees a run for their money in Game 2 and that could happen again with Triston McKenzie on the mound for Cleveland. The 25-year-old held New York to one hit over seven innings in a 2-0 win back in July and enters this game after pitching six shutout innings against the Tampa Bay Rays in the Wild Card Series.

As offensively gifted as the Yankees can be, the fact that they didn't score a run beyond the first inning in Game 2 is concerning. It also doesn't help that New York SP Luis Severino gave up four runs, two homers and nine hits over five innings in his last outing at Progressive Field.

The Yankees might be talented enough to rebound from their Game 2 loss, but I'm going with the Guardians due to their undeniable momentum.

Final Score Prediction: Yankees: 3 | Guardians: 4

Yankees vs Guardians Probable Starting Pitchers

The New York Yankees will look to Luis Severino (7-3 3.18 ERA) in Game 3 and the Cleveland Guardians hand the ball to Triston McKenzie (11-11, 2.96 ERA).
