The Seattle Mariners and Minnesota Twins will play game two of a three game series Saturday night at Target Field in Minneapolis. The Twins will be looking to settle things up after losing 10-1 in game one Friday night.
Ariel Miranda will be on the mound for the Seattle Mariners while the Twins will have Tyler Duffy on the hill.
The Twins have been struggling to get anything going with the bats the last six games, averaging just 1.50 runs per game. The Twins haven’t had much going all year, but they are normally a high scoring team.
They are 91-54-8 on the o/u although you wouldn’t know it looking at their finals for the last week. They are currently ranked 15th in the league at 4.50 runs per game and a team batting average of .253 with 190 home runs.
The recent slump could be perfect for a Seattle team looking to make some noise concerning the Wild Card race.
Tyler Duffy will be making his 25th start of the season and has a record of 8-11.
He has been horrible in his last three starts with a 10.80 ERA. He has a record of 4-6 through his last 13 games with an ERA of 6.95.
He will need all of the run support he can get Saturday from the Minnesota bats.
If being swept at home earlier in the season by the Twins wasn’t already enough motivation for the Mariners, this series will be a great opportunity for Seattle to close some ground in the Wild Card race.
Even after losing 4 of their last 6 games, the Mariners started Friday morning just two games out of the second wild card spot.
The 2.29 runs per game they have been averaging the last seven games isn’t going to be enough to get very far though. Saturday night’s matchup could be what they need to get the bats swinging in the right direction again.
Aerial Miranda will be on the rubber for Seattle, making just his ninth start of the year. He has a record of 5-1 with a 3.47 ERA. He hasn’t been beat in his last three starts with a 0.95 ERA over the three games.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
Like I said, earlier, the Mariners have a score to settle after being swept at home earlier in the year by the Twins.
Minnesota has been looking like they are just going to coast through the rest of the way the best they can this season and shouldn’t be any real threat of being a road bump for Seattle.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Seattle ML and game total over 9.5
Not only has Miranda been hot from the mound lately, the pitching of the Twins will be a great chance for Seattle to get things going on offense.
Seattle should have no problem winning here and beginning a push for the postseason.
