This AL matchup includes a team near the top of their division and a team in the bottom of their division.
The Minnesota Twins are ready to pack up their season; they’re currently 21 games back in the AL Central.
The Boston Red Sox were the AL’s best team for a while, but they currently stand behind the Orioles in the East.
The Minnesota Twins lineup has been bad for most of this season, with not many bright spots. They are led by all-star Eduardo Nunez.
Nunez is hitting .312 on the season with 12 dingers and 43 runs batted in. The veteran Joe Mauer is playing well again this season; he is hitting .268 on the season with 18 extra base hits and has knocked in 29 runs this season.
Brian Dozier isn’t playing well as he was the past few years; he is hitting .247 with a team leading 16 home runs and 49 RBIs. The Twins team will have their hands full against the Red Sox in this one.
The Minnesota Twins have Tyler Duffey on the mound in this one. Duffey is currently 5-6 on the season with a 5.23 E.R.A. and 70 strikeouts.
He was last in action in a no decision against the Cleveland Indians at home. He threw in 6.1 innings where he gave up 4 earned runs on 6 hits.
He walked 3 batters and also struck out 2 in the game against Cleveland. He will have a tough time with this Red Sox lineup.
Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox lineup has been hot for this whole season and most of the reason is from Big Papi in his last season in the majors. Ortiz is hitting .327 on the season with 23 home runs and 75 runs batted in here in July.
Xander Bogaerts is playing awesome at shortstop; he is hitting .318 on the year with 33 extra base hits and 59 RBIs. Mookie Betts has been a big part of the Red Sox success where he is hitting .299.
Betts has hit 45 extra base hits and has knocked in 59 runs on the season. The Red Sox look to stay hot while they close out the month of July.
Steven Wright is on the mound on Thursday against the Minnesota Twins and he is pitching well as of late. Wright is currently 11-5 on the season with a 2.78 E.R.A. and 98 strikeouts.
He won his last start against the Red Sox rival, the New York Yankees. Wright pitched in 6 innings of work where he gave up 3 earned runs on 3 hits.
Wright also struck out 4 and walked 1 in the victory. He will look to stay hot here in the month of July.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
This one seems like it will be lopsided for most of this series. It doesn’t matter who the Red Sox pitch in this series, the Twins lineup has not been strong much of this season, and the Sox lineup has been.
I look for the Red Sox to win this one in all parts of the game.
The Duffey will get beat around for much of this game by this strong lineup, and Wright will be able to do just enough to get by here and come out with the win.
