A battle between AL Central opponents will start on Tuesday as the Detroit Tigers travel to the Minnesota Twins.
Tiger’s catcher Eric Haase made a throwing error on a botched rundown in the bottom of the ninth inning, capping a chaotic play that gave the Twins two runs for a wild 5-4 victory on Tuesday night.
After winning an early game on Saturday 13-0 over the Colorado Rockies, where Miguel Cabrera reached the milestone of 3,000 hits, the Tigers dropped the second game of that doubleheader 3-2 and lost again 6-2 to Colorado on Sunday.
The overall record is not impressive, but nobody in the AL Central has been great in the early going, as the Tigers are tied for third place 1.5 games behind the Twins.
The Tigers are 25th in MLB with 53 runs scored, 12th with a .316 on-base percentage, and 29th with just 7 home runs.
Rookie Spencer Torkelson leads the club with 3 home runs, and Austin Meadows leads the team with a .333 batting average, and 9 RBI. At 39 years old, Miguel Cabrera is batting .319 with 5 RBI but has not homered yet this season.
Detroit’s pitching staff is eighth with a 3.22 ERA. Eduardo Rodriguez (0-1, 5.27 ERA, 1.39 WHIP) will make his fourth start of the season. Rodriguez is 4-1 with a 3.21 ERA in seven career starts against the Twins.
The Minnesota Twins won their fourth straight game and completed a three-game sweep of the Whtie Six with a 6-4 win Sunday. Byron Buxton hammered two home runs and drove in five runs in the victory. His second homer came by way of a three-run walk-off shot in the bottom of the 10th inning.
On the season, the Twins are 19th in MLB with 58 runs scored, 17th in on-base percentage, and 9th with 16 home runs.
Byron Buxton has been phenomenal so far and now has a .351 batting average, 6 home runs, and 11 RBI. Jorge Polanco is second on the team with 2 home runs and 8 RBI’s.
Minnesota is 12th in MLB with a 3.38 ERA team ERA. Chris Paddack (0-2, 5.00 ERA, 1.22 WHIP) will make his third start of the season on Tuesday. Paddack has never faced Detroit in his career.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:

- The Twins are 6-4 ATS at home
- The Twins O/U are 4-5-1 at home
Detroit Tigers vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
Minnesota is on a roll right now. Minnesota has a lot more offensive firepower and upside in this game as their top slugger has only hit one less home run individually than the Tigers have as a team.
The Tigers haven’t been able to put together a consistent stretch of good baseball yet, and have dropped 8 of their last 10 games as an underdog.
The Twins have won 21 of the last 28 matchups at home between these teams and that is a trend I can get behind.
Take Minnesota again on Wednesday.
