Minnesota Twins vs Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction

I’m on the Twins here. It was one rough inning that did the Twins in on Tuesday and a late run from the bullpen, but I think they’re in a better position here. Woods-Richardson’s been solid this season and the Twins in my eyes have the better bullpen. Ryne Nelson has a history of getting torched at home and he still has an ERA near six at home this season. I think the Twins bounce back with another win here so give me Minnesota.

Chris’s Pick Minnesota -120
