The offense is ranked 12th while the pitching is ranked 3rd. On the mound for the Twins will be Sonny Gray who sits with a 4-0 record and an ERA of 0.77.

Twins vs Guardians Trends

Twins are 5-0 in Grays last 5 Saturday starts. Twins are 4-0 in Grays last 4 starts during game 2 of a series. Twins are 4-0 in Grays last 4 starts when their opponent allows 2 runs or less in their previous game. Guardians are 0-5 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series.

Shane’s Free Pick

Sonny Gray has been lights out this season, and the Guardians offense is going to continue to struggle on Saturday. Look for the Guardians to max out at one run, and that is going to be the difference as the Twins are going to find success. Back the Twins on the run line. The under is also going to cash. I love both of these plays. 

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