The Cleveland Guardians and Minnesota Twins face off on Tuesday in an MLB showdown at Target Field. These two teams are currently the top two in the American League Central. 

The Twins currently sit with a 38-30 record overall, but they lost two of three games against the Arizona Diamondbacks over the weekend. The Twins have a talented offense but far too often their bats have gone cold this season, and that’s what let them down against the Diamondbacks. The Twins are averaging 4.41 runs per game which is 14th in baseball. Byron Buxton has hit 19 home runs and driven in 33 RBIs. Even though he is having a big year it’s clear his knee isn’t 100 percent. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Guardians who sit with a 34-28 record overall and they won two of three over the weekend against the Dodgers. In the two wins, Cleveland gave up only four runs total and they are going to need good pitching again in this game. All season the pitching has been strong giving up only four runs per game which is 7th best in baseball. On offense, Cleveland is led by Jose Ramirez, and he has hit 16 home runs and driven in 62 RBIs.

On the mound for the Twins will be Joe Ryan who sits with a 5-3 record and an ERA of 2.81. In his last start against the Seattle Mariners, he struggled going 4.2 innings while giving up five hits and four runs. 

The Twins are 1-4 in their last five games gainst the American League Central. Cleveland is 6-0 in their last six games during Game 1 of a series. The under is 4-0 in Ryan’s last four home starts. The under is 5-1-1 in the Twins last seven games overall. 

Ryan struggled a bit in his last start, but returning home is going to be good for him. He was hurt by the long ball in the last game, but overall he has kept the ball in the ballpark this season, and Cleveland is going to struggle to score. Buxton has been hot coming into this game, and he will continue the success here. Back the Twins on the run line.
