Twins double up Tigers
Minnesota won by a 6-3 score at Detroit Friday night to improve to 42-20 overall and 23-11 on the road. Mitch Garver helped pace the offense as he finished 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBIs. C.J. Cron was 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double, a walk and two runs scored. Nelson Cruz was 1-for-4 with a solo home run plus a walk. Marwin Gonzalez ended the contest 4-for-5 with two doubles and an RBI. Ryne Harper picked up the win in relief as he struck out the side in a perfect inning of work. Blake Parker earned his ninth save as he allowed one hit, struck out one and walked two in a scoreless ninth inning. Kyle Gibson draws the start today for the Twins as he enters with a 6-2 record, 3.75 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with 63 strikeouts over 62 1/3 innings.
Tigers drop third straight
Detroit fell by a 6-3 score at home Friday night to drop to 23-37 overall and 10-20 at home. Christin Stewart was 2-for-4 with a walk and a run scored to help pace the Tigers offense. Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-5 with a double and a run scored. Ronny Rodriguez finished 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI. Joe Jimenez suffered the loss as he allowed two earned runs on three hits with one strikeout and no walks in one inning of relief. Detroit has not yet announced a starting pitcher for today's game.
MLB Betting Trends
The Twins are 10-1 in their last 11 Saturday games. Minnesota is 5-0 in the last five Gibson starts on Saturdays.
The Tigers are 7-20 in their last 27 games overall. Detroit is 0-4 in its last four Saturday games.
I don't even need to know who the Tigers' starter will be to know it will likely be someone very hittable. With the Twins offense raking all season, I think they'll support Gibson just fine no matter who they face today. Go with a Twins team that should be big favorites.
