The MLB is back in action today as the Oakland Athletics will clash with the Minnesota Twins at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Oakland Athletics Form
The A’s are one of the best teams in the league this season. Moreover, this Oakland team has now won 12 of their last 14 games in the MLB. However, they are still behind the Astros in the AL West. Yet, the gap of 4 games seems like something that they can catch up with. On the other side, the A’s will need to keep this winning pace in order to keep ith with the Cleveland Indians as they are both sharing the 2nd spot in their division.
On the offensive side of the game, the A’s score an average of 5.23 runs per game which is the 8th record in the league in scoring. They are also on the 17th spot in hitting at .250 and 5th in homers with 158. On the mound, they are placed on the 7th spot in the league in ERA at 3.95, while also ranking 5th in WHIP at 1.25 and 26th in K’s with 752. Their pen ranks 4th in ERA at 3.88.
Minnesota Twins Form
The Twins are playing well this season. However, it seems that they have been suffering a lot lately as they lost their last 3 MLB games. However, on a positive side, they still have 4 lead in their division.
The Twins are hoping to get back on track in this series, but it will not be easy as the A’s have been playing really well this season. Still, the Twins have gone a very solid 28-17 here at home so far this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Twins score an average of 5.63 which is the 3rd best record in the league in scoring. Also, they are 3rd in hitting at .270 and 1st in homers with 174. On the mound, they have been solid as they rank 5th in the league in ERA at 3.92, while also being 6th in WHIP at 1.25 and 17th in K’s with 820.
The A’s are playing really well at the moment and their form is constantly improving. On the other side, the Twins struggled lately and they will need to improve soon. However, they are playing at home and their home record is really good this season. A record of 28-17 gives me good confidence to take the Twins in this one.
