The Twins nearly beat Chris Sale as +300 underdogs on Friday. Of course, they didn’t actually almost beat Sale, who threw 100 pitches over six innings, striking out 10 and continuing his remarkable run of one earned run allowed over his last six starts. He’s thrown over 20 consecutive scoreless innings too.
But Eddie Rosario’s double with two outs in the ninth against Craig Kimbrel plated two and briefly gave Minnesota a lead. Fernando Rodney couldn’t hold it, however. Rafael Devers led the ninth off with a solo home run to send it to extra innings.
Mookie Betts won it to lead off the ninth with a towering solo homer over the Monster. The Twins did cover the runline and keep it under for us.
It was a bit surprising to see Minnesota trade away its third baseman Eduardo Escobar, who broke out this season and was in the midst of a career year.
Escobar leads the league in doubles and has fifteen homers but he’s now manning the hot corner in Arizona. He is twenty-nine, though, and not exactly as young as I had assumed. The Twins got three prospects in return, two of which are ranked in the top twenty.
Boston Red Sox
So Boston snapped its two-game losing streak but it didn’t exactly do it in convincing fashion. Rick Porcello goes on Saturday in what looks like another tough game.
The problem is Boston’s offense, though Mookie Betts could soon get going again after the way he ended Friday night’s game. It’s just a little concerning that the lineup relies so much on he and JD Martinez. They must be wearing down with so much of the burden on their shoulders.
Nathan Eovaldi will make his Red Sox debut in a fine spot, a Sunday afternoon game at Fenway Park. How can you not get amped up in that spot? I suspect he’s going to be great.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction: Boston wins.
I’ve been taking Minnesota all weekend but I feel good about the Red Sox on Sunday. For this one, I’m more willing to drink some juice. I still don’t have enough confidence in the offense to take on more than -150 though. Given how the oddsmakers have been pricing Boston all season, I probably won’t have a play.
