The Minnesota Twins and the Detroit Tigers will finish off their MLB series on Monday.
The two teams split the first pair of games in this set, then in the Sunday matchup The Twins banged out an 8-3 victory.
For Monday’s game, the Twins will go with Jake Odorizzi in the starting role. Over his 137.0 innings and 14-6 mark so far, Odorizzi has a 3.55 ERA with 145 Ks and 49 BBs.
The Twins posted 12 hits in the win Sunday and scored five runs in the second inning. Nelson Cruz led the way on three hits and two RBI.
Over on the Tigers’ side, they’re going with Jordan Zimmerman in the start. Across 88.0 innings and a 1-9 record this year, Zimmerman has a 6.24 ERA with 66 Ks and 22 BBs.
The Twins are 47-16 in their last 63 versus a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30 and the under is 6-1-2 in their last nine Monday games. The over is also 7-3-2 in Minnesota’s last 12 in game four of a series.
Meanwhile, the Tigers are 9-24 in their last 33 Monday games and 6-24 in their last 30 in game four of a series. Detroit is 20-41 in Zimmerman’s last 61 starts and 6-23 in his last 29 home starts.
Zimmerman has been pretty solid over his last three starts, but he’s got just an 0-1 record to show for it. In that span, he’s given up a combined four earned runs in 16.0 innings on nine hits with 14 strikeouts.
Over his last nine games, Zimmerman is 1-4, which doesn’t bode well for my confidence here. I’m sticking with the Twins.
