The Line: Seattle Mariners -155 / Minnesota Twins +145 --- Over/Under: 8 See the Latest Odds
The Minnesota Twins and Seattle Mariners meet Saturday night for game two of their series.
The Minnesota Twins look for three straight wins for the second time this season. The Twins have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The Minnesota Twins offense seems to be heating up, but they’ve still lost 10 of their last 18 games when scoring more than three runs. Joe Mauer leads Minnesota with 47 hits, Miguel Sano has 22 RBI and Byung Ho Park has nine home runs. Phil Hughes gets the ball, and he’s 1-7 with a 5.55 ERA and 27 strikeouts this season. Hughes is 7-4 with a 3.50 ERA and 57 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.

The Seattle Mariners look for another win after winning six of their last eight games. The Mariners have allowed 15 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last 11 games. The Seattle Mariners have an ERA of 3.20 and have won five straight games when allowing three or less runs. Offensively, Robinson Cano leads Seattle with 57 hits, Nelson Cruz has 32 RBI and Kyle Seager has eight home runs. Wade Miley takes the hill, and he’s 5-2 with a 4.50 ERA and 41 strikeouts this season. This will be Miley’s first career game against the Twins.
The Twins are 3-13 in their last 16 during game 2 of a series and 3-13 in Hughes' last 16 road starts. The Mariners are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. American League Central and 6-0 in Mileys last 6 starts. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Twins obviously haven't been able to string together wins this season, and they now have a pitcher on the hill in Hughes who has been downright terrible this season. I'll take the Mariners at home to get the victory.
