Two teams who are on complete opposite ends of the spectrum in the AL meet in the final series prior to the All Star break when the Minnesota Twins and Texas Rangers meet on Thursday.
The Twins sit on the bottom of the barrel, while the Rangers are at the top in the American League.
The Minnesota Twins hasn’t endured many win times in the first half of the MLB season.
Minnesota still sits under 30 wins, but has won 4 of it’s last 5 to get to 29 victories.
Not that home has been kind to Minnesota, but the road has been even worse. The Twins have gone just 10-28 away from Target Field while scoring less than 4 runs per game and conceding over 5.
Minnesota’s recent success has come from their starting pitching. Ervin Santana was the latest, throwing a complete game shut out in the series finale win over Oakland.
Trying to follow suit, Tyler Duffey gets the ball. Duffey allowed 4 runs in 6.0 innings against Texas last week, which earned him the victory.
Duffey has won back to back games after 5 straight starts without a win.
The Rangers started this season by battling the Mariners for the top spot in the AL West.
However, that battle didn’t last long. The Rangers took off and opened a giant gap in the division. The gap has closed a bit and theres now a realistic 2 team battle for the top spot with the Astros.
The Rangers sit with the best record in the AL with 53 wins. Their 28-12 home record has a lot to do with that as this team gets a lot of offensive production inside Globe Life Park.
Texas will send out Chi Chi Gonzalez, who just hasn’t found it the last couple seasons. Gonzalez failed to even make it out of the first inning against Minnesota on Saturday.
He was charged with 4 runs and simply hasn’t had the stuff to put hitters away. That doesn’t bode very well for him here as he heads into a hitters ballpark.
