The New York Yankees will play the Minnesota Twins in Game 3 of their series at Target Field on Thursday night.
The New York Yankees are 40-16 this season and have won seven of their last eight games. New York won Game 1 of this series by a score of 10-4 on Tuesday. The New York pitching staff has a 2.87 ERA, a 1.06 WHIP, and a .214 opponent batting average this season. The Yankees offense has scored 269 runs with a .245 batting average and a .323 on base percentage. Aaron Judge is batting .311 with 22 home runs and 45 RBI’s for the Yankees this season. The projected starter for New York is Gerrit Cole, who is 5-1 with a 2.78 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP over 64.2 innings pitched this season.
The Minnesota Twins are 33-25 this season and have alternated wins and losses over their last six games. Minnesota won Game 1 of this series by a score of 8-1 on Wednesday night. The Minnesota pitching staff has a 3.73 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a .238 opponent batting average. The Twins offense has scored 256 runs with a .251 batting average and a .324 on base percentage this year. Max Kepler is batting .255 with six home runs and 27 RBI’s for the Twins this season. The projected starter for Minnesota is Dylan Bundy, who is 3-3 with a 5.57 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP over 42 innings pitched this season.
New York is 5-1 in their last 6 Thursday games and 38-15 in their last 53 games overall. The over is 4-1-1 in New York’s last 6 games. Minnesota is 2-4 in their last 6 games on grass and 0-4 in their last 4 Thursday games. The over is 5-0-1 in Minnesota’s last 6 home games. New York is 70-24 in these two teams last 94 head to head meetings.
These two teams come into this game leading their respective divisions by at least a few games. Minnesota has taken advantage of a weak AL Central, while the Yankees are one of the best teams in baseball. The Yankees have the pitching advantage in this game and I expect them to get back on track after their Game 2 loss. I like the Yankees to win by multiple runs here.
