The Astros will meet the Marlins after this series.

Twins Offense Wasn’t Good Enough

The Twins offense scored 12 runs on Friday, but it wasn’t enough, as they ended up losing by five. Jose Miranda had quite the game finishing with four hits and two RBIs. Correa Hit a grand slam in the bottom of the 9th, but they still ended up falling short.  The Twins are averaging 4.86 runs, while their pitching is giving up 4.35 runs per game.

Houston Astros vs Minnesota Twins Prediction

This game is going to be lower scoring. The Twins are averaging 4.86 runs per game, but they are going to really struggle to get the offense going here. Brown gave up four hits and zero runs in his last start, and he’s going to lockdown in this game. Ryan usually has one bad pitch game that goes out of the ballpark, but outside of that he’s going to be dominant here. Back the under to cash here.
