Kepler wins it in 17th
Max Kepler delivered a game-winning RBI single in the bottom of the 17th inning Tuesday night to send Minnesota to a 4-3 victory over Boston.

MLB Betting Trends
The Red Sox are 7-0 in the last seven Rodriguez starts on Wednesdays. Boston is 36-15 in the lst 51 Rodriguez starts.
The Twins are 21-5 in their last 26 game threes of a series. Minnesota is 4-0 in the last four Gibson home starts.
Both teams are bound to be a little fatigued today, but at least it's another night game rather than a day game. Rodriguez doesn't post the best numbers, but for whatever reason the Red Sox find a way to win most of the time he's on the mound. Gibson is having a nice season, but I think Boston gets to him today as it wants to get the bad taste out of its mouth from last night's finish. I'm siding with the Red Sox as small dogs.
