The Kansas City Royals look to stay red hot and lay a beating down again on the Minnesota Twins when the teams meet up at Target Field on Wednesday.
The Royals look to continue their ascent up the ranks in the American League standings as they continue their series in Minnesota on Wednesday night and can extend their winning streak if they can keep their bats hot against Tyler Duffey. Kansas City is looking as every bit as scary as they did last October when they hoisted the Commissioner’s Trophy as World Series champions and they will send Dillon Gee to the mound here looking for yet another win as they can move three games clear of the .500 mark with a victory tonight.

The Twins’ misery continued again last night and they will look to play out their current funk tonight when they send Tyler Duffey to the mound who is 1-3 with a 3.30 ERA as he faces off against Dillon Gee who is 1-1 with a 2.90 mark. Minnesota is in for a long season as they simply don’t have the pieces in place to compete in the AL Central and they should be in the running for the league’s worst mark as they have holes all over the diamond and one of the worst rotations in the majors. The Twins are 11-33 on the year and while the Royals haven’t had the start many expected they have won eight in a row and will be out for blood again here.
The Royals are 5-0 in their last five starts against a righty, 6-2 in their last eight overall, and 5-11 in their last 16 road starts against a righty while the Twins are 3-12 in their last game three of a series, 5-22 in their last 27 against the AL Central, and 1-10 in their last 11 home games against a righty. The Twins are a mess right now and while they will get back in the win column soon I just don’t see it happening here against a Royals team on the way up.
