Minnesota Twins Recap

The Minnesota Twins will look to rebound after a 5-1 loss in Tuesday’s series opener against the Yankees, not what the Twins were looking for if they’re going to keep their series win streak alive after series wins over the Astros and Royals over the last week.

Twins Struggling With Consistency

Willi Castro leads the Twins at the dish with 52 hits including 12 doubles and 4 triples as well as 16 RBIs and 7 stolen bases. Ryan Jeffers has a team-high 12 home runs, 36 RBIs and 14 doubles with a .246 batting average and .333 OBP. Carlos Santana has 8 home runs with 23 RBIs while Edouard Julien also has 7 home runs, 17 RBIs and 6 stolen bases but also has a team-high 66 strikeouts as well this season.

Why the Minnesota Twins will win

  • The Twins have won three of their last four games as underdogs after playing the previous day.
  • The Twins have covered the run line in four of their last five games as underdogs against American League opponents following a loss.
  • The Yankees have failed to cover the run line in three of their last four night games against AL Central opponents following a home win.
  • The Twins have won the first inning in three of their last four games as underdogs against AL East opponents.

New York Yankees Recap

The New York Yankees will be out to add to Tuesday’s series opening win which pushed their win streak to six and put the Yankees in a decent spot to pick up another series win after series wins over the Giants, Angels and Padres over the last week and a half.

Yankees Still Rocking At The Plate

Juan Soto leads the Yankees with 75 hits along with 11 doubles and 17 home runs with 53 RBIs to go along with a .319 batting average and .418 OBP. Aaron Judge has a team-high 21 home runs of his own along with a team-leading 19 doubles while also posting 69 strikeouts so far this season. Anthony Volpe’s added 70 hits with 6 home runs, 5 triples, 25 RBIs and a team-high 11 stolen bases as well this season. Giancarlo Stanton also has 15 home runs, 34 RBIs and 67 strikeouts this season.

Why the New York Yankees will win

  • The Yankees have won each of their last 10 games against AL Central opponents.
  • The Twins have lost each of their last eight road games against teams that held a winning record.
  • The Yankees have covered the run line in each of their last nine games against AL Central opponents.
  • The Twins have failed to cover the run line in eight of their last nine night games against AL East opponents that held a winning record.
  • The Yankees have led after 5 innings in each of their last nine night games.
  • The Yankees have led after 3 innings in each of their last six games against AL Central opponents that held a winning record.

Minnesota Twins vs New York Yankees Prediction

I’m on the Yankees here. For me, the Twins are starting to become one of the more streaky teams that are hard to get a feel for and I don’t like them in this spot. Paddack’s had a real history of struggling on the road this season and at Yankee Stadium against a Yankee team that’s on fire offensively right now, I think it’s just a bad spot for the Twins. Rodon’s pitched really well up to this point and I think he leads the Yankees to a win here. Give me New York.
