The San Francisco Giants and Minnesota Twins face off on Saturday in an MLB showdown at Target Field. On Friday it was the Twins that were able to secure the 9-0 victory. 

The Twins come into this game with a 63-61 record overall and they had lost five games in a row before they were able to win on Friday. Joe Ryan had a strong start on Friday going six innings giving up two hits and zero runs. The Twins pitching overall is giving up 4.19 runs per game which is 13th in the league. Jorge Polanco has hit 16 home runs and driven in 56 RBIs so far this season. 

On the other side of this matchup is the GIants who sit with a 61-63 record overall and they have lost two games in a row. Over the last three games, the Giants have scored only four runs total, and they need to find a way to get the offense going here. Overall this season the Giants are averaging 4.44 runs per game which is 13th in the league. 

On the mound for the Giants is Alex Cobb who sits with a 4-6 record and an ERA of 3.99. In his last start against the Colorado Rockies, he went six innings giving up seven hits and three runs. 

On the mound for the Twins is Sonny Gray who sits with a 7-4 record and an ERA of 3.10. In his last start against the Texas Rangers, he went six innings giving up five hits and two runs. 

The Twins are 1-6 in their last seven games. The Giants are 4-1 in their last five games in interleague games as underdog. The under is 4-0 in the Giants last four games during Game 2 of a series. 

Sonny Gray has been lights out this season and he is going to follow up Ryan’s strong start with a strong start of his own. The Giants bats are going to be ice cold like they were on Friday, and that will be the difference as the Twins get the job done. Back the Twins on the money line.
