The Minnesota Twins and Kansas City Royals face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at Kaufmann Stadium. The Royals have won the first two games of this series.
The Twins sit with a 73-76 record overall and they have lost three games in a row. Early in the season, the Twins offense was strong, but they have gotten worse as the years has gone on. The Twins are averaging 4.32 runs per game which is 17th best in the league. The pitching has had a ton of injuries, and that has hurt their chances to win. Jose Miranda has hit 15 home runs and driven in 64 RBIs.
The Royals sit with a 60-89 record overall and they have won the first two games of this series. The Royals have struggled all over the field. The pitching is giving up 5.01 runs per game which is 26th in the league. Bobby Witt has been the top offensive player hitting 20 home runs and driving in 75 RBIs so far this season.
On the mound for the Twins is Josh Winder who sits with a 4-4 record and an ERA of 4.17. In his last start against the Cleveland Guardians, he went 4.2 innings giving up six hits and four runs.
On the mound for the Royals will be Jonathan Heasley who sits with a 3-8 record and an ERA of 5.09. In his last start against the Red Sox, he went 6.2 innings giving up two hits and zero runs.
The Royals are 1-5 in Heasley’s last six home starts. The over is 6-1 in Heasley’s last seven games against a right-handed starter. The over is 4-0 in Heasley’s last four home starts against a team with a losing record.
I really don’t trust either of these pitchers. Winder in his last start gave up four runs, and the Royals bats will score plenty off of him. Heasley has also struggled this season, especially at home and he sits with an ERA of 5.09. This game is going to be high scoring and the over is going to cash.
