The Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox face of on Wednesday in an American League showdown at Target Field. This is a preview for the second game which is expected to kick off right after the first gae ends. Since this is a doubleheader, this game will only be seven innings long.
These two teams faced off on Tuesday and it was the Twins pitching staff that let them down again late as they were defeated. Bobby Dalbec was the best player for the Red Sox driving in two RBI’s.
The Minnesota Twins are no doubt a talented team, but the bullpen has let them down and that has led to them blowing games. Byron Buxton has been the best player so far this year for the Twins hitting five home runs and driving ten RBI’s.
On the other side of this matchup is the Boston Red Sox who come into this game having won four games in a row and just two games ago against the Orioles the offense was able to put up 14 runs and that led to the easy victory. J.D. Martinez has been the best player for the Red Sox hitting five home runs and driving in 16 RBI’s.
Nathan Evoladi will get the start for the Red Sox and he has been strong this year giving up only two runs in his two starts.
On the mound for the Twins will be Kenta Maeda who comes into this game with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 2.61. Maeda was the Twins best pitcher last year, and they need him to go deep into this game.
Red Sox are 20-8 in their last 28 vs. American League Central. Red Sox are 5-2 in their last 7 vs. a team with a winning record. Red Sox are 48-20 in their last 68 Wednesday games. Twins are 2-5 in their last 7 games with the total set at 9.0-10.5. Twins are 1-5 in their last 6 home games with the total set at 7.0-8.5. Twins are 1-6 in their last 7 home games.
I expect runs are going to be hard to come by in this game and this will be a good old-fashioned pitchers duel. Back the under to cash with ease.
