Sano guides Twins to win

Miguel Sano hit a 2-run home run in the top of the eighth inning Monday night to help send Minnesota to a 3-1 victory at the Angels. It was the only hit for Sano in four at-bats. Luis Arraez helped pace the Twins offense as he finished 3-for-4 with a run scored. Max Kepler finished 2-for-4 with a run. Taylor Rogers picked up the win in relief as he gave up one hit with two strikeouts and one walk over 1 2/3 innings of work. Michael Pineda will start tonight for Minnesota as he enters with a 3-3 record, 5.55 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with 41 strikeouts over 47 innings.

Ohtani, Simmons hurt in defeat

Los Angeles lost by a score of 3-1 at home Monday night versus Minnesota as both Shohei Ohtani and Andrelton Simmons were injured in the eighth inning. Tommy La Stella helped pace the Angels offense as he went 3-for-4 with an RBI. Brian Goodwin was 2-for-4 and scored the lone run. Simmons was 1-for-4 before departing with a leg injury. Ty Buttrey suffered the loss in relief as he surrendered two earned runs on three hits with no strikeouts or walks over one-third of an inning. Trevor Cahill starts tonight for LA as he comes in with a 2-4 record, 6.95 ERA and 1.39 WHIP with 33 strikeouts over 44 innings.

MLB Betting Trends

Minnesota

The Twins are 7-1 in their last eight road games. Minnesota is 1-5 in the last six Pineda starts.

Los Angeles

The Angels are 13-6 in their last 19 games versus the AL Central. Los Angeles is 1-4 in the last five meetings.

Prediction:

Minnesota is playing like a first-place team, while LA has been up-and-down and now is dealing with a couple more key injuries. Ohtani is questionable for tonight, but the Angels might want to take precaution. Simmons is for sure out with an ankle sprain. I'm going to take my chances on Pineda delivering a decent enough start and Cahill continuing his struggles on the other side. Going with the small dog here.
