The Red Sox are in a bit of a slump, losing 5 of their last 7. They play the twins who have lost 7 of their last 10 but they just beat the Marlins 2-1 in their 3 game series.
The Sox are still scoring a good amount of runs besides scoring just 1 against Mad Baum.
They’ve scored just 18 runs in their last 5 games but if you remove the game vs Mad Baum, that’s 17 in 4 which is barely a slump.
The Twins have struggled all season but have scored 21 runs in their last 4 games.
Boston Red Sox
The Sox continue to remain the number 1 run producing team in the MLB. They average 5.8 per game.
Their mini reduction in run production is a combination of inter league play, which means Papi sits and facing tough Blue Jays pitching.
I would expect them to score in bunches again in this game.
Rodriguez is 1-1 with a 5.40 era with just 11.2 innings pitched so far this season.
He’s shaking off the rust that’s for sure and expect him to pitch well in his 3rd start.
He gave up just 2 against the Orioles in his first start this season. He gave up 5 on the Jays but we know he’s better than that.
The Twins have scored more lately but the Twins should help Rodriguez regain some confidence.
The Twins are scoring a bit more in recent games and have won 2 of their last 3.
They look to have their offense in check and hope to have this continue.
They have scored 35 in their last 7 games, which is 5 per game and well above their 3.8 runs per game season average.
The big issue for them is their pitching now that the offense looks to be better.
They give up 5.3 runs per game which is 29th in the MLB.
The’ve given up 33 runs in their last 5 games, which is even higher than their season average.
Gibson is 0-3 with a 6.10 era. He hasn’t had a start since April, so his first game back from injury will not be an easy one.

Free Boston Red Sox vs Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
Let’s face it, Boston is the way better team here regardless of recent trends.
Sox are barely struggling and although they’ve been giving up a lot of runs, they score a lot too.
Twins are scoring more than usual which is a bit concerning but I think the pitching favours the Sox too.
Sox should win this.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Red Sox ML
This game may score a lot of runs, but both pitchers are still trying to find their stride, so maybe they find it this game and hold the totals down.
However, my gut tells me it is high scoring because both teams are scoring a lot and both teams are giving up a lot of runs.
