Yankees have five-game win streak snapped

New York lost 8-4 at home Sunday afternoon against Colorado to drop to 64-34 overall and 38-17 at home. Aaron Hicks helped lead the Yankees offense as he finished 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk. Mike Tauchman went 1-for-2 with a solo homer, a walk and two runs scored. D.J. LeMahieu was 1-for-4 with a solo home run. James Paxton suffered the loss as he surrendered seven runs (four earned) on five hits with six strikeouts and three walks over 3 1/3 innings. CC Sabathia draws the start tonight as he enters with a 5-4 record, 4.06 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with 77 strikeouts over 82 innings.

Twins rally past A's

Minnesota scored twice in the bottom of the ninth Sunday afternoon to post a 7-6 home win over Oakland. Max Kepler drove in Ehire Adrianza with the game-winning RBI single in the ninth. Kepler finished the contest 3-for-6 with a home run, a double, three runs scored and four RBIs. Adrianza was 3-for-5 with a double, a triple, two runs and two RBIs. Luis Arraez ended the game 3-for-5 with a run scored. Kohl Stewart picked up the win in relief as he walked one and struck out two in a scoreless frame. Martin Perez will start tonight for the Twins as he comes in with an 8-3 record, 4.10 ERA and 1.35 WHIP with 89 strikeouts over 101 innings of work.

MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Yankees are 6-1 in their last seven Monday games. New York is 56-24 in its last 80 games overall.

Minnesota

The Twins are 0-4 in their last four games versus a left-handed starting pitcher. Minnesota is 4-1 in the last five Perez starts in a series opener.

Prediction: 

New York was slowed down briefly Sunday, but should be full steam ahead again soon. But as for tonight, I actually prefer the Twins. Perez is good at limiting home runs (eight allowed in 101 innings) and the Yankees are so tailored for the long ball. Sabathia is typically reliable, but Minnesota should be able to get to him enough at home. While the Twins haven't been great lately, they stay at home here and are coming off a nice win. Go with the home team in this spot.
