Shane’s Free Pick

The Twins are going to win this game. This season is all but over for the Guardians and they are going to really struggle here. Ryan gave up only one run in his last start and he’s going to really lockdown in this game. Look for the Twins bats to get to Gavin Williams here, and that will be the difference as the Twins are going to get the job done with ease. Back the Twins on the money line.
