Twins top Kluber
The Twins managed to beat Corey Kluber and the Tribe in Cleveland on Friday, picking up a 6-3 victory to open the series. Minnesota is now 30-36 overall with a 13-19 record on the road. The Twins are averaging 4.24 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.41 per contest.
Fernando Romero is on the mound for the Twins this afternoon. He has started a total of eight gamest his year and has a 3-2 record with a 3.92 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. Romero has pitched a total of 41.1 innings and has 39 strikeouts and 16 walks.
Tribe in a funk
The Indians have dropped three of their last four games to the Twins and White Sox following Friday’s upset. The Tribe are now 36-32 overall with a 20-12 home record. The Indians are putting up 4.81 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.35 per contest.
Carlos Carrasco gets the start for the Indians on Saturday. He has an 8-4 record through 14 starts this season and has a 3.90 ERA with a 1.13 WHIP. He has pitched a total of 90.0 innings and has 94 strikeouts with 21 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Twins are just 3-8 in their last 11 road games and 1-5 in their last six Game 2’s of a series. They are also 1-4 in their last five road games against a winning team.
The Indians have won five of Carrasco’s last six Saturday starts and 10 of his last 11 home starts against a losing team.
The Twins were able to get to Kluber last night, but Kluber didn’t look like himself and possibly was injured. Carrasco has been great over his last two starts, allowing just one run in 14 innings with 21 strikeouts and two walks. I think he will be able to continue his strong run against this Minnesota lineup while Romero can’t match his effort.
The Pick: Cleveland Indians -200
