Twins rally past Mariners
Minnesota scored three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning Tuesday night to earn a 6-5 home victory over Seattle. Jorge Polanco helped pace the Twins offensively as he went 3-for-3 with two doubles, a run and an RBI. Jonathan Schoop was 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs. Jason Castro finished 1-for-3 with a solo home run. Matt Magill picked up the win in relief as he struck out one in a perfect inning of work. Trevor May earned his first save of the season as he allowed two hits and struck out one in a scoreless inning.

MLB Betting Trends
The Mariners are 7-19 in their last 26 road games. Seattle is 1-4 in the last five meetings.
The Twins are 4-0 in their last four games versus the AL West. Minnesota is 12-2 in the last 14 Berrios starts.
While Milone has been sharp for Seattle, the Mariners are a mess as a whole and are going to have a tough time solving Berrios. The Mariners blew their shot at a win yesterday and I'd be surprised if they were even in a position to blow it late again today. But if they are, Seattle will probably find a way to blow it again considering its 15-40 stretch following a blazing 13-2 start to the season that seems like a very long time ago.
