The Minnesota Twins will look to pull off yet another upset win this Thursday, as they take on the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park in Boston Massachusetts.
The Twins do enter this game on a 4 game losing streak, but they did give the Red Sox a scare in the first game of this series only losing by a score of 11-9 showing everyone that they do have what it takes to beat a team like the Red Sox.
Minnesota is firmly focused on the future at this point, but that does not mean that they do not have plenty of talent in this side with guys like Jorge Polanco having nice seasons. They also will have plenty of bounce back candidates going into the 2022 season with guys like Max Kepler, if healthy, likely able to excel with a full season.
John Gant heads to the hill here and he has not been all that good this year with a 6.00 ERA and he is not exactly coming in here off the back of a good effort, as he allowed 4 earned runs in 3.1 innings of work against the New York Yankees.
Boston Red Sox
This Boston Red Sox, if they can get their pitching together, can be a serious player this year once we get to the playoffs as they have such an awesome offense which can take on basically any pitcher in the league and put up runs.
This batting lineup has been made even more powerful when they brought in Kyle Schwarber who was on an absolute tear for the Nationals earlier in the year and if he can replicate that down the stretch of the season this team might still be live to win this division.
Another thing that makes this team dangerous, is the return of Chris Sale who has looked very good since returning from injury only allowing two earned runs in his first two starts and he is the type of pitcher who can be a shutdown type of guy come playoff time.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
The Red Sox seem very tough to fade at this point, as they seem to be gearing up for a big September and with Chris Sale on the mound it makes it very tough to believe the Twins will be able to keep up with this Red Sox batting lineup during this game. We do have to lay a ton of juice, but I think we are getting a much better price on the runline, as I think we could see this Red Sox offense go off against John Gant who I do not believe has what it takes to shutdown these guys.
