The Texas Rangers and Minnesota Twins face off on Saturday in an MLB game at Target Field. On Friday it was the Twins that were able to secure the 2-1 victory. 

The Rangers come into this game with a 55-66 record overall and at this point, they are just trying to play spoiler. The Rangers have lost three of their last four games, and in the three losses, they scored only four runs total. The Rangers are giving up 4.16 runs per game which is 21st in the league. Adolis Garcia has hit 19 home runs and driven in 74 RBIs so far this season. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Twins who sit with a 62-55 record overall and they have won four games in a row. Over the last four games, the Twins have given up only three runs total. The Twins pitching overall is giving up 4.19 runs per game which is 13th in the league. On offense, the Twins have been led as of late by Jose Miranda who hit another home run on Friday. Miranda has hit 13 home runs and driven in 52 RBIs. 

On the mound for the Rangers is Glenn Otto who sits with a 5-8 record and an ERA of 4.96. In his last start against the A’s he went six innings giving up two hits and one run. 

On the mound for the Twins is Chris Archer who sits with a 2-6 record and an ERA of 4.15. In his last start against the Angels, he went four innings giving up four hits and three runs. 

The Twins are 5-1 in their last six home games. The Twins are 0-4 in Archer’s last six starts. The over is 6-1-1 in the Rangers' past eight games against a team with a winning record. The over is 4-0-2 in the Tiwns last six games on Saturday.

The first game of this series was low scoring, and I expect the same in this game. The Twins bats are going to struggle against Otto who gave up one run in his last start. Archer is also going to find success against the Rangers bats that have been ice cold heading into this one. Back the under to cash.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
