The Minnesota Twins look for a win after winning five of their last six games. The Twins have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Twins have won seven of their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Joe Mauer leads Minnesota with 49 hits and 28 RBI while Torii Hunter and Trevor Plouffe have combined for 56 RBI. The Minnesota Twins have won five of their last seven home games. Kyle Gibson takes the hill, and he’s 4-3 with a 2.72 ERA and 27 strikeouts this season. This will be Gibson’s second career game against the Blue Jays.
The Blue Jays are 16-36 in their last 52 games as a road underdog and 3-7 in their last 10 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Twins are 6-0 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series and 0-6 in Gibsons last 6 starts vs. American League East. The Blue Jays are 19-7 in the last 26 meetings in Minnesota and 37-14 in the last 51 meetings overall.
The Blue Jays picked up a rare road victory Friday night, but can they get another on short rest? I'm not sure. The Twins continue to play great ball and have won six straight game 2s. I like the home team.
