The Oakland Athletics and Minnesota Twins face off on Friday in an American League MLB showdown at Target Field. 

The Oakland Athletics come into this game with a 10-15 record overall and they have lost six games in a row. In four of the last five games, the A’s offense has scored three runs or less, and they need to find a way to have more offensive success in this series. Catcher Sean Murphy has been the top offensive player for the Athletics hitting four home runs and driving in 15 RBIs. 

Minnesota currently sits with a 15-11 record overall but they have lost two games in a row. Over the last two games, the Twins have scored seven runs, but the pitching staff has given up 14 runs. Byron Buxton is having a monster year for the Twins hitting eight home runs and driving in 16 RBIs. Buxton hit another home run on Thursday night.

Getting the start for the A’s is Cole Irvin who sits with a 2-1 record and an ERA of 2.93. In his last start against Cleveland, he went six innings giving up six hits and one run. 

Getting the start for the Twins is Josh Winder who currently sits with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 2.20. Winder started the season in the bullpen, but will be making his second start in this game. In his first start, Winder went six innings giving up two hits and zero runs. 

The Twins are 6-0 in their last six home games. The A’s are 0-6 in their last six games overall. The over is 5-0 in the Twins last five games against a left-handed starter. The over is 5-1-1 in the Twins last seven home games against a team with a losing road record. 

Winder had a big game in his last start not giving up a run, and I expect he is going to lockdown again in this game against the A’s. The A’s have scored three runs or less in four of their last five games, and their bats are going to be ice cold in this game. Back the Twins to win this game on the run line.
