Thursday’s game will be the last of a four game series between the Twins and Tigers.
The series was tied at a game apiece as of Wednesday. Detroit is still 6 games behind in the American League Central, but they are still in a very tight race for a wildcard spot with five other American League teams.
Hector Santiago will get the start for Minnesota while Detroit will send Mike Pelfrey to the mound Thursday afternoon.
Pelfrey is making his first start for the Tigers since coming off of the disabled list and a minor league assignment.
Detroit definitely still has a lot to play for and needs to play every game like it’s their last.
They still have plenty of time to chip away at the six game deficit in order to win the American League Central, but need to keep their focus on the Wild Card race.
Mike Pelfrey will be on the mound after spending some time on the disabled list and completing a minor league assignment with the Toledo Mud Hens due to a back strain.
Although he has had an up and down season, Pelfrey didn’t allow more than a run in 4 of his last 6 starts in July.
He is 3-2 during his last seven starts and has an ERA of 4.41. In order for Pelfrey and the Tigers to come away with the win, Detroit is going to have to be more productive in the batter’s box.
They have only been able to score 30 runs throughout their previous 10 games.
While the season is already over for the Twins, they have been playing hard for the sake of pride. Minnesota has brought the big boy sticks with them up to bat, scoring 53 runs during their last 10 games, 8 of them against the Tigers on Tuesday.
Because of the fact that he was acquired by the Twins via trade last August, Hector Santiago has only pitched against the Tigers in one previous start this season. He allowed six runs off of five hits in 6.2 innings.
Santiago has gone 1-4 his last seven trips to the mound with an ERA of .6.34.
The Twins will need to keep their bats swinging in order to provide Santiago with some run support if they want to keep things close Thursday.
Pelfrey’s first trip back to the mound for Detroit could be a great opportunity for the Twins to take another game from the Tigers.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:

- The Tigers have only scored 30 runs in last 10 games.
Free Minnesota Twins vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
Lets look at the game for what it is, two mediocre pitchers who have had some struggles. Santiago has an ERA over 6 his last seven starts and Pilfer hasn’t faced a Major League hitter from another team in a while.
The Twins have been hot with their bats laying downs some serious wood work as of late.
I look for this to be a high scoring game do to the pitching with the Twins finding a way to come out on top in Detroit.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Minnesota ML and game total over 9.5
Santiago is going to give up some hits which could lead to runs, but I think the Twins relievers will keep the Tigers in check while the rest of Minnesota’s roster will continue to find gaps in the outfield while swinging for the fences.
