These are the top two teams in the division and right now they are neck and neck. They are also built totally differently which is actually kind of nice.
Minnesota is built to mash but they are missing three key players from the lineup right now in Josh Donaldson, Mitch Garver and Byron Buxton. There is still some power for sure but they are not as deep as they want to be, making this a critical stretch of the season.
Luckily Nelson Cruz continues to show that age is just a number. He leads the team in all triple crown categories and with guys like Eddie Rosario and Miguel Sano there are still a bunch of bats that can give the ball a ride. Sano finally has his average over .500 and about half his hits go for extra bases.
Kenta Maeda has looked really good coming over from the Dodgers. The Twins are 4-1 in his starts and he is showing good dominance – 12Ks in his last outing. He only gave up one hit to Cleveland over 6 innings back on August 1. Sergio Romo can still get guys out and is in the closer role now.
The Indians have the best pitching in the league and the question is whether the offense can contribute enough to get them through. Aaron Civale might not have the dominating stats of some others on the starting staff but he does own the only complete game by an Indian this season. That was at Pittsburgh but it only took 109 pitches to get through. I am not worried about the pitch count as he has gone 100 or more another couple of times this season and pitched well afterwards.
Franmil Reyes has been the saviours of the offense this season. Carlos Santana has been racking up walks but it is the guy hitting behind him that has been doing all of the damage. Francisco Lindor is slowly raising his average but the production just hasn’t been there. They need him to be a difference maker for this team to be special.
Free Minnesota Twins vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
I think you have to like the Indians in this series at home and in this game. They may not be hitting throughout the lineup but they have all the guys they want and Civale has been good this season.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Indians ML
The Indians don’t generally run away from teams though so we may have to sweat this one. Civale will be better than Maeda though.
