Starting Pitching Matchup
Bailey Ober will start for Minnesota and is 2-0 with a 1.85 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season. Clayton Kershaw will start for the Dodgers and is 6-2 with a 2.36 ERA and 56 strikeouts this season.
Los Angeles’ 9-8 win back on Monday made it 12 straight wins for the Dodgers in this head-to-head matchup over the Twins.
Minnesota is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall and 16-38 in their last 54 road games while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 interleague games. Los Angeles is 54-19 in their last 73 home games and 48-19 in their last 67 interleague games while the over is 6-1-1 in their last 8 games against the AL Central.
I’m backing the Dodgers here. Los Angeles continued their dominance over Minnesota with another win on Monday, even if it got a bit dicey near the end, and I’m looking for it to continue here. Clayton Kershaw’s by far played his best at home this season and I look for the Dodgers as a team to follow suit. Minnesota continues to be inconsistent and I look for the Dodgers to get it done here.
