Minnesota is looking to win the AL Central as they hold a 6.5 game lead against Cleveland. The Twins have the top-ranked offense as they lead the league in runs and homers.
The question in Minnesota is whether they have the reliable pitching.Jake Odorrizi (3.61 ERA) and Jose Berrios (3.57) have been reliable in the rotation.
The problem is after them.
The Twins offense is led by Nelson Cruz who is hitting .310 with 35 homers and 92 RBIs. Max Kepler (36 homers), Jorge Polanco (.304), and Eddie Rosario (27 homers) have also had good seasons.
The Twins will call on Martin Perez to close out the series. Perez is 9-6 with a 4.89 ERA this season. The lefty has gotten a lot of run support.
In his last outing he was terrible having allowed seven runs in 2.2 innings against the Tigers.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox are in trouble as they are 5.5 games in back of the second AL Wild Card spot.
The problem for the Red Sox is that there are four teams battling for two spots. Boston has had no issues scoring as the rank third in the league in offense (794). Pitching has been the issue as they’ve allowed 703 runs.
On Tuesday night the Red Sox lost 6-5 to the Twins. Rick Porcello struggled as he allowed six runs in four innings.
Rafael Devers hit his 29th homer of the season while Andrew Benintendi hit his 13th homer in the loss.
Nathan Eovaldi will take the mound for Boston on Thursday night. Eovaldi is 1-0 with a 6.23 ERA in 43.1 innings this season.
The problem for Eovaldi has been the long ball as he has allowed 10 homers already.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction: Red Sox ML
In a subpar pitching matchup I expect Eovaldi to out-duel Perez here. It won’t be a pretty game but the over is too high to look at.
