This AL Central matchup includes two teams that are most likely out of playoff contention.
The Minnesota Twins are not having the season they hoped for, they are 20 games behind the Cleveland Indians.
The Kansas City Royals are the reigning world champions, but it looks like they’ll miss the upcoming playoffs this season.
The Minnesota Twins lineup has been almost forgettable this season and they haven’t looked good all year. They are led by the veteran Joe Mauer. Maurer is hitting .284 to go along with 31 extra base hits and 44 RBIs.
Brian Dozier is hitting .267 on the season with a team high 26 home runs and 72 RBIs. Dozier has been one of the hottest hitters of the second half of the season.
Miguel Sano has posted a batting average of .250 to go with 20 home runs and 50 RBIs. The Twins will go up against the Royals ace Volquez.
The Twins have Tyler Duffey on the bump Friday night. Duffey is currently 8-8 on the season with a 5.71 E.R.A. and 90 strikeouts. Duffey looked good last week in a start again the Royals where he picked up a win.
He pitched in 7 innings where he gave up 2 earned runs on 6 hits. Duffey also walked 1 batter and struck out 6 in the win. He looks to tally back to back win against the Royals.
Kansas City Royals
The Kansas City Royals lineup has been up and down for most of this season overall. They are led this season by all-star Eric Hosmer.
Hosmer is hitting .274 on the season to go with 40 extra base hits and 69 RBIs. Salvador Perez is hitting .256 with 23 doubles and 51 runs batted in so far this season.
Kendrys Morales has poked a team leading 20 home runs while driving in 51 runs on the season. The Royals look to battle against the last place Twins.
The Royals have their ace Edinson Volquez on the bump Friday but he has been struggling this season. Volquez is currently 9-10 on the season with a 4.95 E.R.A. and 107 strikeouts.
In his last start, he went against the Minnesota Twins where he picked up a big win. He pitched in 6 innings of work where he gave up 4 earned runs on 5 hits.
Volquez also walked 1 batter and struck out 3 in the victory. He looks to pitch back to back wins against the Twins.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
This matchup included wins from both teams just last week, I’m taking the Twins on the road in this one. Volquez has been pitching poorly this season and I do not look for him to be able to pitch back to back quality starts.
The lineup led by Dozier has not been bad this second half of the season and I look for the bats to stay alive here against the Royals.
I see Duffey doing enough in order to come out with a win.
