Shane’s Free Pick

The Twins have won the last six starts by Gray at home, and it’s going to be no different here. Gray sits with an ERA of 1.35 and the Cubs offense is going to really struggle again in this game. The Twins might score only four or five runs here, but that is going to be enough to get the job done. Back the Twins to get the job done. Back the Twins.
