Guardians 6, Rangers 3

Box Score | MLB Recap | CTC Recap | Game Thread

That magic number just keeps shrinking. Now down to three with the Guards’ win last night and the White Sox’s loss to the Tigers, the playoffs are tantalizingly close. Last night required a comeback from the Guardians, as well as an escape act to not blow the lead with the bases loaded in the ninth....

Guardians rally past Rangers to win fifth straight

Could have done without the drama in the ninth inning

The Cleveland Guardians erased a 2-0 deficit Friday night, riding a five-run outburst in the sixth inning to beat the Texas Rangers, 6-3, and notch their fifth consecutive win.

The Guardians broke the game open in the sixth inning, trailing 2-1 as the Rangers turned the game over to their bullpen with Taylor Hearn on the mound in relief of starting pitcher Jon Gray. With one out and runners at the...

A’s Claim Ernie Clement From Guardians

The A’s announced they’ve claimed infielder Ernie Clement off waivers from the Guardians, who’d designated him for assignment earlier this week. Oakland also recalled reliever Sam Selman from Triple-A Las Vegas and placed right-hander Joel Payamps on the 15-day injured list with a lumbar strain.

The Guardians could theoretically wrap up the AL Central by the end of this series — they just have to win first

The Guard show will continue on the road tonight as Cleveland heads to Texas to face the Rangers for the second and final time this season. Cleveland took two out of three in the first matchup, with their only loss being Kirk McCarty’s first career start (and second MLB appearance).

The Guardians were still finding their identity when...

Guardians 4, White Sox 2

Box Score | MLB Recap | CTC Recap | Game Thread

A game close in score and nothing else, the Guardians handily defeated the White Sox yesterday to complete the sweep, take the season series, and likely punch their ticket to the postseason. Some sloppy White Sox defense helped, sure, but the Guardians also played good, smart baseball last night. It wasn’t the most exciting...

The White Sox waived the white flag tonight

If you ditched your beloved first-place Cleveland Guardians to watch the Browns tonight, I’d love to tell you that you made a mistake. I would probably be lying because you didn’t really miss a whole lot here. This game certainly wasn’t as painful as Twitter is making the Browns one sound, but the exhilarating playoff atmosphere of the first two games was gone as the White Sox looked utterly deflated in the...

Zach Plesac hasn’t pitched in almost a month due to a self-inflicted injury

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the MLB. Throughout the year we ask questions of the most plugged-in Cleveland Guardians fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to participate.

I figured for our inaugural SB Nation Reacts survey I’d ask a simple question about them: Will Zach Plesac pitch for the Guardians ever again?

There are glimmers of hope in Josh Naylor’s bat again — understanding how pitchers were attacking him during his slump could be key to him taking the next step 

Pretty much since he debuted with Cleveland back in 2020, Josh Naylor has held strong to the “Large Adult Son” moniker. His on-field intensity coupled with his off-field Canadian kindness, his performance in the 2020 playoffs, and just his overall vibe made a perfect melange for...

Guardians 8, White Sox 2

Box Score | CTC Recap | MLB Recap | Game Thread

There’s still work to be done for the Guardians, but they did what they needed to last night by smoking the White Sox early and often. Steven Kwan’s ascension continued, and he even showed some power with a late home run. Meanwhile, Triston McKenzie and Josh Naylor will be the nightmares of Sox fans all offseason.

The Guardians are slaying AL Central opponents one after another

They’ve been playing perfect until now. If we keep winning series, we know that sooner or later they’re gonna crumble, the closer we get. (Thursday) is gonna be a really good game for us to go out there and put a statement.

I don’t know if the Guardians truly cared about this statement — and at this point, they wouldn’t admit it even if it did — but seeing the...
