Twins fall again
The Twins suffered a 10-4 loss to the Red Sox in Boston on Saturday. Minnesota is now 48-55 overall and 19-33 on the road. The Twins are putting up 4.55 runs per game this year while allowing 4.67 per contest.
The Twins give the ball to Jose Berrios this afternoon. He has a 10-7 record this year through 21 starts with a 3.48 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. Berrios has pitched a total of 134.1 innings this year and he has 136 strikeouts with 30 walks.
Red Sox get back-to-back wins

Newly acquired Nathan Eovaldi gets a start for the Red Sox today. He comes over from Tampa Bay where he started 10 games and has a 3-4 record with a 4.26 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP. He had 53 strikeouts and eight walks over 57.0 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The Twins have won 14 of their last 18 games against AL East opponents, but they have lost 10 of their last 14 against winning teams.
The Red Sox have won six straight Game 4’s in a series and they have also won eight of their last 10 against AL Central opponents.
Berrios has been a good pitcher this year, but trending a little on the downside over his last five starts. Eovaldi comes in for the Red Sox today looking to provide a spark to the rotation. Out of his last five starts, four have seen him give up two runs or less. He did have a really poor outing against Minnesota two weeks ago, but I think he will rebound with a stronger lineup behind him.
The Pick: Boston Red Sox -140
