The Texas Rangers and Minnesota Twins face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Target Field. The two teams have split the first two games of this series.
The Twins come into this game with a 62-56 record overall, but they can’t keep losing games like they did on Saturday against the Rangers. This is a talented offense, but far too often their offense has games where they really struggle to score. Overall the Twins are averaging 4.48 runs per game which is 13th in the league. Jose Miranda is having a big game hitting 13 home runs and driving in 53 RBIs.
On the other side of this matchup is the Rangers who sit with a 54-66 record overall and on Saturday it was the pitching that led them to the victory. The Rangers offense is middle of the road, but what has let them down has been the pitching. They are giving up 4.46 runs per game which is 21st in the league. Adolis Garcia has hit 19 home runs and driven in 75 RBIs so far this season.
On the mound for the Rangers is Kohei Arihara who sits with an 0-1 record and an ERA of 4.76. In 5.2 innings he has given up eight hits and three runs.
On the mound for the Twins is Joe Ryan who sits with a 9-5 record and an ERA of 3.92. In his last start against the Kansas City Royals, he went 5.1 innings giving up six hits and two runs.
The Twins are 1-4 in their last five games on Sunday. The under is 4-0 in Ryan’s last four home starts. The under is 5-1-1 in the Twins' last seven games on grass. The over is 6-1-1 in Rangers last 8 vs. a team with a winning record.
Ryan is coming off a start where he gave up only two runs, but he has been a little more inconsistent as of late. Look for the Twins to struggle to score again in this game, and that is going to be the difference as the Rangers are going to get the job done. Back the Rangers on the money line.
