I'm not thrilled with this pitching matchup, but we're getting the Giants at plus money, the team that's playing better baseball and has a hot offense. The Minnesota Twins continue to come up short offensively, and it's a key role in this losing stretch. Quick turnaround, I'll take a stab with the road dog.
