Arizona Diamondbacks vs Minnesota Twins Prediction

I’m not thrilled to back Simeon Woods Richardson on the road, but he’s been decent this season, and he’s certainly a better option than Ryne Nelson this season. Nelson has been a mess this season and his worst efforts have come at home where he has a near 6 ERA. A Twins offense that has multiple guys who can drive the ball, they should have success against Nelson and his struggles at Chase. Give me the Twins and the cheap price in game 2 against the Diamondbacks.
