Minnesota Twins vs Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction 

The Twins come into this series trying to chase down the Guardians in the AL Central, but Cleveland continues to pull away from them. Minnesota is 20-19 on the road, while Arizona is 19-18 at home. The Diamondbacks have been a pretty solid offensive team, especially recently, but their pitching staff has had issues all season. Arizona will turn to Brandon Pfaadt, who has not looked very strong in recent outings. Minnesota is going with Joe Ryan, who has a WHIP under one so far this season, and has been very good. I know Ryan is the better starting pitcher, but I think Arizona can get to him here. My Minnesota Twins vs Arizona Diamondbacks prediction is for the Diamondbacks to win.
