Minnesota and Detroit continue their series at Comerica Park on Wednesday night. The Twins salvaged their series against the Los Angeles Angels over the weekend. The Tigers also lost their prior three-game set against Cleveland.

Twins salvage another series, but offense needs some help

Minnesota had a power outage in the first two games of their series against the Los Angeles Angels, but rebounded in the finale, 7-5. This has now happened in two straight series — the prior one against the Chicago White Sox. The offense needs to find a bit more consistency if they want to compete with Cleveland for the divisional title down the stretch. Eduardo Escobar (.288 avg) has been the most reliable lately with 13 hits and 9 RBIs in his last eight games.

Probable starter: Right-hander Jose Berrios (7-5, 3.66 ERA)

Berrios had another terrific showing against the Chicago White Sox last Thursday, his second straight win and fourth in his last five starts. He gave up two earned runs on six hits in the complete game, hurling 109 total pitches and recording a perfect ratio of 10 K’s to 0 BB’s.

Boyd picks up an impressive victory against Boston

Outside of putting up seven runs in their series finale against Boston last Thursday, Detroit has been held to four runs or less in eight of their last nine games. It’s equated to a stretch of 3.4 runs per nine innings over the last 10 games. That’s not good when the team’s pitching has accumulated a 4.75 ERA in the same stretch. Catcher James McCann (.242 avg) missed Sunday’s game with an illness and it’s unknown when he’ll return in this series.

Probable starter: Left-hander Matthew Boyd (4-4, 3.20 ERA)

Boyd also had a victory in his last start, impressively against Boston last Thursday. He gave up two earned runs on four hits through 6.1 innings of work. His pitching ratio has been mediocre lately (13 K’s to 13 BB’s in last 4), but his team has still won in three consecutive starts.

Trends

Twins are:

  • 6-1 in Berrios’ last 7 starts against teams with a losing record

Tigers are:

  • 2-7 in their last 9 games against starters with a WHIP less than 1.15

Both of these starters have been linked to many recent victories for the teams they represent. Their offenses have also been incredibly mediocre. However, with Minnesota having recent success against the division, the edge goes to them.

Pick: Minnesota

This is pretty much a no-brainer on the total. Both starters have combined for around a 6.00 ERA over their last three starts. Minnesota has been limited in what their offense has achieved consistently. The odds are much more in favor of this finishing below the total.

  • Under is 7-0 in Twins last 7 games against left-handed starters

Pick: Under
