The Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins battle in game number two of their twin bill.
The Minnesota Twins are doing surprisingly well and are currently occupying second in the American League Central that was supposed to be a two team race between Kansas City and Detroit. However the Twins have been getting very competitive work on the mound and their offense is no stranger to lighting up the scoreboard. Put the two together and you have the ingredients necessary to compete with anybody. The question is whether Minnesota can continue to win over the long haul and that’s a question that can not be answered right now. Trevor May will get the starting nod in the second game of their twin bill at Fenway Park. May will be looking to bounce back fro a 6-4 loss to Toronto where he was charged with four runs on eight hits over six innings.

The Boston Red Sox were out of the American League East race early last season and are just trying to get in it this year. Fortunately for the Red Sox the season is still early with plenty of time to right the ship and nobody is looking like they are going to run away with the division. The Red Sox problems are obvious to the average fan and that’s more pitching and hitting are needed which is always easier said then done. I think Boston will see how things pan out up to the All Star break and if things are going poorly this will be anther year of changes. Rick Porcello draws the game two start against the Red Sox at Fenway Park on Wednesday. Porcello has struggled the past two times out with a combined 13 runs allowed on 14 hits and five BB in 11.1 frames.
Minnesota are 21-7 in their last 28 overall and are 21-7 in their last 28 games on grass while the over is 6-2 in their last 8 vs. American League East. Boston are 3-11 in their last 14 Wed. games and the under is 7-2 in their last 9 home games and 21-8-1 in Boston’s last 30 overall. The Twins are 7-15 in the last 22 meetings in Boston. I’m not confident in either hurler so why not go with the better odds…
