Yankees dominating the series
The Yankees picked up an 8-3 win on Tuesday to stretch their win streak over Minnesota two six games. The two games this week have been 22-4 in favor of New York. The Yankees are now 13-9 overall and 9-5 at home. New York is putting up 6.05 runs per game on offense while allowing just 4.81 per contest.
Sonny Gray hopes to get on track tonight in his fifth start of the season. Through four starts he is 1-1 with an 8.27 ERA and a 2.08 WHIP. He has 11 walks with 15 strikeouts over 16.1 innings.
Twins losers of five straight
The Minnesota Twins have now lost five straight overall and six of their last seven after Tuesday’s loss. Minnesota is now 8-10 overall and 3-7 on the road after starting the season relatively well. The Twins are scoring 4.06 runs per game this year while allowing 4.94 per contest.
Lance Lynn takes the mound for the Twins tonight. He is 0-1 through three starts with a 6.00 ERA and a 1.87 WHIP. Over 15 innings of work, he has 19 strikeouts with 15 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Twins are 3-9 in their last 12 road games against a winning team and they have lost their last five games against AL East opponents.
New York has won six straight against AL Central opponents and they have won 20 of their last 27 Wednesday games. They also have won 40 of their last 58 at home.
There could be some runs scored tonight with a pair of struggling pitchers on the mound. However, New York is better suited for a home run derby, given the tremendous power they have the middle of their order. I don’t see the Twins being able to keep pace in a shootout.
The Pick: New York Yankees -180
