Royals vs. Guardians NRFI (-139)

The Guardians and Royals don't have much to play for in their matchup Tuesday night. Cleveland will throw one of its top pitchers against Kansas City.

Cal Quantrill will take the hill with a 14-5 record and a 3.42 ERA. Over his past two starts, Quantrill has been delivering strong efforts.

Quantrill has limited opponents to two earned runs over his past 12 innings pitched. Kansas City pitcher Daniel Lynch will make the start for the Royals. Lynch also allowed two or fewer earned runs over his past two starts.

Cubs vs. Reds NRFI (-124)

The Cubs and Red are playing a series that will help determine which team finishes in the basement of the National League Central division. Chicago avoided the embarrassment of finishing last by finishing the season with a strong stretch of games. The Reds, however, still need to keep winning if they want to avoid finishing below Pittsburgh.

Cincinnati pitcher Luis Cessna will be happy to see the Cubs. While Chicago is fourth in the MLB in runs score in the first inning at .62, Cessna has had success against the Cubs.

During a September 8 start against Chicago, Cennsa limited the Cubs to two runs across 5.2 innings pitched during a 4-3 Chicago win. This game should stay scoreless in the first.

Twins vs. White Sox NRFI (-130)

The White Sox have had a bizarre season. Despite the drama with manager Tony LaRussa, Chicago still has a chance to finish with a winning record. The White Sox hope Lucas Giolito can provide the spark Tuesday night to win the game.

Minnesota is fifth in the league scoring .61 runs in the first inning per game. Chicago is 24th, averaging .44 runs in the first inning. Minnesota pitcher Josh Winder is 4-5 with a 4.31 ERA this season. While Chicago does have something to play for, both teams' minds will likely be on the end of the year.
