The Oakland Athletics will host the Minnesota Twins in the second game of a double-header on Tuesday. Monday’s game was cancelled due to COVID protocol.

The A’s will come into this game having won 8 straight games after their 3-2 win against Detroit on Sunday. Chris Bassitt started and struck out 8, then the bullpen pitched 3 shutout innings of one-hit ball. From the dish they had just 5 hits and were 0-7 with runners in scoring position. Sean Murphy hit a game-tying solo shot in the 8th inning for his first of the season. To start the year, Oakland has a .216 team batting average and .692 OPS. Jed Lowrie leads the team with a .333 batting average, 12 RBI and a .928 OPS.

Minnesota lost 6 of 7 before having their next three games cancelled due to COVID-19 issues. They have been solid from the plate to start, ranking number 7 with a .252 team batting average and .734 OPS. Byron Buxton has been a pleasant surprise from the plate. He leads the team with a 4.69 batting average, 5 home runs and a 1.622 OPS.

Neither team has released a starter, and they may elect for an opener out of the bullpen in this seven-inning affair.

Oaklands bullpen has a 4.52 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and .245 batting average against in 61.2 innings. They have given up 5 home runs and struck out 55.

Minnesota’s bullpen has a 5.19 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and .270 batting average against in 54.1 innings. They have given up 8 home runs and struck out 58.

Oakland is 9-1 in their last ten games, 8-2 on the run line, and the under is 6-4.

Minnesota is 3-7 in their last ten games, 1-9 on the run line, and the under is 6-4.

Oakland has won 4 games at home during their 8-game win streak, and 5 straight at home overall. Minnesota on the other hand has been solid on the road this season, but it is hard to pick against Oakland while they are on this run. Their bullpen is 5-0 with a 0.91 WHIP in the last 7 days so they should be able to piece together a win in this one. Give me the A’s to win.
