The San Francisco Giants are still rooted firmly in the race for one of the last two wildcard spots in the National League with less than 20 matches to play. After going through a poorly timed six-game losing streak, San Francisco has now run off four straight wins.
Trailing 4-3 in the bottom of the tenth on Monday, they rallied for two runs courtesy of LaMonte Wade Jr.’s single to centre to conclude the walk-off win. They continue to fight four other teams for the remaining wild card spots.

The Cleveland Guardians’ hope to make the playoffs is looking impossible after a 3-7 stretch of baseball entering Tuesday night’s match in San Francisco. They have lost three successive games following Monday night’s 5-4 defeat by the Giants in 10-innings. They led 4-3 after scoring one run in the top of the 10th but close Emmanuel Clase permitted two in the bottom of the 10th to collect his 9th loss of the season.
Logan Allen will pitch for the Guardians in today’s series finale. He is 7-7 on the season in 22 starts including seven top starts. He has permitted 114 hits in 117.1 innings pitched with an ERA of 3.68. His K/9 rate is 8.7 and his WHIP is 1.34. In road matches, Allen is 5-3 in 11 starts with an ERA of 3.36 and 61 strikeouts in 56.1 innings pitched. He went 2-2 with an ERA of 4.15 while striking out 25 batters in 26 innings pitched for his last five games.
MatchPlug Prediction For San Francisco Giants VS Cleveland Guardians
Although Allen has been one of the Guardians’ most consistent starters this season, he will be pitching for a Cleveland team that is now in must-win mode. The Giants have won four consecutive games entering Tuesday night’s match and have won all of Harrison’s two home starts this season.
Matter of fact, Harrison has an ERA of 3.28 at home in two starts with 16 strikeouts in 11.1 innings pitched. San Francisco can rely on him to get them into the sixth inning and turn the game over to the bullpen to finish off the light-hitting Guardians. Cleveland is 3-7 in its last ten games and has all but waved the white flag in the AL Central Division race. The Giants will outlast Cleveland on Thursday and secure the win.
Prediction: San Francisco Giants Moneyline.
