Red Sox win fifth straight

Boston moved a season-best five games over .500 Sunday night with an 8-6 victory at Baltimore for a fifth straight win. Marco Hernandez helped pace the Red Sox offense as he went 1-for-5 with a solo home run. Rafael Devers ended the contest 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored. Mookie Betts went 3-for-5 with a walk, a run and two RBIs. Brandon Workman picked up the win in relief as he allowed one hit and struck out one with no walks in one inning of relief. Rick Porcello draws the start tonight as he enters with a 4-6 record, 4.69 ERA and 1.35 WHIP with 66 strikeouts over 80 2/3 innings.

Twins have three-game win streak snapped

Minnesota had its three-game winning streak snapped Sunday afternoon with an 8-6 loss against Kansas City. Nelson Cruz helped lead the offense as he ended the contest 2-for-5 with a home run, a double and three RBIs. Miguel Sano went 2-for-4 with a solo home run plus a walk. Max Kepler was 4-for-6 with two doubles and two RBIs. Martin Perez suffered the loss as he allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings, striking out seven and walking one. Jose Berrios will start today as he enters with an 8-2 record, 3.01 ERA and 1.10 WHIP with 84 strikeouts over 89 2/3 innings.

MLB Betting Trends

Boston

The Red Sox are 8-3 in the last 11 Porcello starts. Boston is 19-7 in its last 26 road games. 

Minnesota

The Twins are 21-5 in their last 26 games following a loss. Minnesota is 9-2 in the last 11 Berrios starts.

Prediction:

Boston has been weirdly better on the road than at home lately, but the Twins have also been fantastic at bouncing back from losses. Also, winning at Baltimore barely counts. Berrios is having a stellar season and should get ample run support from a good Minnesota offense against a pitcher in Porcello who has been up-and-down this season. I'm liking the Twins at home tonight.
