The Blue Jays are 1-5 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 3-7 in Hutchisons last 10 road starts. The Twins are 6-2 in their last 8 vs. American League East and 5-0 in Nolascos last 5 starts. The Blue Jays are 20-7 in the last 27 meetings in Minnesota.
The Twins are flat out one of the hotter teams in baseball and have been very tough to beat lately at home. I'll keep riding that heat wave.
