Berrios spins gem

Minnesota secured a 7-4 victory Wednesday night at Miami to improve to 66-41 overall and 35-20 on the road. Jose Berrios picked up the win as he allowed two hits with 11 strikeouts and no walks over seven innings. Max Kepler helped pace the offense as he went 1-for-1 with a solo home run, three walks and two runs scored. Eddie Rosario finished 2-for-4 with a homer, a double and two RBIs. Mitch Garver ended the contest 2-for-5 with a home run, two runs and three RBIs. Michael Pineda gets the start tonight as he enters with a 7-5 record, 4.30 ERA and 1.18 WHIP with 100 strikeouts over 111 innings. 

Marlins score four in ninth in loss

Miami trimmed a seven-run deficit to three Wednesday night at home versus Minnesota but ultimately fell by a count of 7-4. Brian Anderson helped lead the Marlins offensively as he went 1-for-4 with a grand slam. Yadiel Rivera was 1-for-1 with a run scored off the bench. Jon Berti went 1-for-2 with a run off the bench. Sandy Alcantara took the loss as he allowed six earned runs on seven hits with five strikeouts and five walks over 4 2/3 innings. Jordan Yamamoto takes the hill today as he comes in with a 4-2 record, 3.64 ERA and 1.02 WHIP with 41 strikeouts over 42 innings pitched. 

MLB Betting Trends


The Twins are 5-1 in their last six road games. Minnesota is 5-1 in the last six Pineda road starts.


The Marlins are 11-40 in their last 51 Thursday games.


Pineda is a flyball pitcher, but has pitched well over the last couple months and is facing a team deplete of a lot of power in a pitcher's park. That's a good combo. While Yamamoto had a string of great starts to start his MLB career, he has struggled against good offenses lately and the Twins fit that category. I like Yamamoto's future outlook as he has an impressive arsenal that keeps opposing hitters off balance, but I think a good Minnesota offense is enough to take him down today as he won't likely get a lot of run support.
