The Minnesota Twins look for a win after winning four of their last six games. The Twins have allowed seven runs in this series and three or less runs in four of their last six games. The Twins have won six of their last seven games when allowing three or less runs. Offensively, Joe Mauer leads Minny with 21 hits and nine RBI while Kurt Suzuki and Torii Hunter have combined for 15 RBI. The Minnesota Twins have won five of their last seven games on their home field. Phil Hughes takes the hill, and he’s 0-4 with a 4.39 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season. Hughes is 7-7 with a 4.07 ERA and 73 strikeouts in his career against the Tigers.
The Tigers are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 9-4 in their last 13 games as a favorite. The Twins are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 3 of a series and 0-4 in Hughes' last 4 starts. The over is 8-1-1 in the last 10 meetings in Minnesota.
The Tigers have played great ball when Greene is on the mound. The Twins with Hughes? Not so much. I'll take the road team here for the cheap price.
