Jonathan Schoop leads the Tigers with 110 hits and 60 RBI while Jeimer Candelario and Robbie Grossman have combined for 173 hits and 79 RBI. Wily Peralta gets the ball, and he is 3-2 with a 2.56 ERA and 23 strikeouts this season. Peralta is 2-3 with a 4.28 ERA and 26 strikeouts in his career against the Twins.
The Minnesota Twins have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Twins have split their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Jorge Polanco leads the Twins with 94 hits and 49 RBI while Luis Arraez and Josh Donaldson have combined for 142 hits and 67 RBI. J.A.

The Tigers are 11-1 in their last 12 Wednesday games and 41-88 in their last 129 road games. The Twins are 4-10 in their last 14 Wednesday games and 4-9 in their last 13 overall. The over is 5-2 in Tigers last 7 road games. The under is 4-1-1 in Twins last 6 overall. The Tigers are 8-24 in the last 32 meetings in Minnesota and 17-36 in the last 53 meetings.
The Twins are in no position to be laying juice in their current form with the constant underachieving and with them moving key players. J.A. Happ has also been horrible this season, which includes allowing 35 hits and 19 earned runs in his last 24.1 innings. Happ is allowing a .296 batting average with 27 walks. No, thanks. Give me the Tigers and the plus money.
