The Minnesota Twins and Oakland Athletics face off on Tuesday in an MLB showdown at RingCentral Coliseum. In the first game of this series, it was the Twins that secured the 3-1 victory. 

The Twins come into this game with a 21-15 record overall, and Monday’s game was a perfect representation of the team. The Twins' offense hasn’t always been the best this season, but their pitching has been quite impressive, and it’s what they have really leaned on to find success. Jorge Polanco is having a big season driving in 21 RBIs. Byron Buxton has hit 11 home runs and driven in 20 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Oakland Athletics who sit with a 15-23 record overall and they have lost three games in a row. Over his last three games, the A’s have only scored three runs total, and they are going to need the offense to be better in this game. Sean Murphy has been the top player for the A’s hitting four home runs and driving in 20 RBIs so far this season.

Getting the start for the Twins will be Dylan Bundy who sits with a 3-2 record and an ERA of 5.76. After a fast start to the season, he has struggled. In Bundy’s last start he went 3.1 innings giving up 11 hits and nine runs. 

On the mound for the A’s is James Kaprielian who sits with an 0-2 record and an ERA of 4.97. He has had 10 strikeouts so far this season. 

The A’s are 3-13 in their last 16 home games. The A’s are 2-8 in their last 10 games played on Tuesday. The under is 4-0-1 in the Twins last five games against a team with a losing record. The under is 5-1-2 in the A’s last eight games against the American League Central. 

These haven’t been the best offenses this season, but I expect they will both find plenty of offensive success here. Bundy gave up nine runs in his last start, and the A’s are going to find success scoring. Kaprielian has been inconsistent this season, and the Twins bats will take advantage. Back the over.
