Twins rally past Tigers

Max Kepler hit a go-ahead two-run single in the top of the eighth inning Monday afternoon as Minnesota downed host Detroit 4-3 in a series finale. Kepler ended the game 2-for-5 with the two RBIs. Ehire Adrianza finished 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs to also contribute offensively for the Twins. Luis Arraez went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored. Zack Littell gave up two hits with no strikeouts or walks over one inning of relief to notch the win. Taylor Rogers threw a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout to pick up the save. Randy Dobnak draws the start today for Minnesota as he enters with an 0-0 record, 0.00 ERA and 1.63 WHIP plus six strikeouts over eight innings of work.

Red Sox prevail in series finale

Boston edged host Los Angeles Sunday afternoon in a series finale to improve to 74-63 overall and 40-29 on the road. Xander Bogaerts ended the contest 3-for-4 with a home run, a double and three RBIs. J.D. Martinez went 1-for-2 with a solo home run plus two walks. Rafael Devers finished 2-for-4 with a run scored. Ryan Weber picked up the win in relief as he gave up one hit plus one strikeout and one walk over two innings. Brandon Workman threw an inning of perfect relief with one strikeout to notch the save. Rick Porcello gets the start today for Boston as he comes in with a 12-10 record, 5.42 ERA and 1.41 WHIP plus 117 strikeouts over 149 1/3 innings pitched.

MLB Betting Trends

Minnesota

The Twins are 8-1 in their last nine games overall. Minnesota is 37-16 in its last 53 road games.

Boston

The Red Sox are 14-3 in the last 17 Porcello Tuesday starts. Boston is 4-1 in its last five Tuesday games.

Prediction:

Minnesota has been killing it on the road and although Dobnak probably won't pitch too deep, I trust the Twins' bullpen more than Boston's. Despite being a groundball pitcher, Porcello has allowed his fair share of home runs this year and overall is having a disappointing year. I'm taking a shot on a first-place team as an underdog on the road.
