Running away with the AL Central, this season’s Twins represent MLB’s perennial surprise story. Overall, Minnesota has won four-of-six after ousting Boston 4-3 Tuesday night in a 17-inning thriller.
This evening, staff ace Jake Odorizzi (10-2, 2.24 ERA) is tasked with maintaining the Twins’ momentum opposite last placed division rival Kansas City.
Odorizzi has won ten-consecutive decisions, including a June 15 encounter vs. KC. However, the Royals didn’t go quietly that day. Kansas City pushed Odorizzi and his Twins to the brink after gaining seven hits, four runs and two home runs through five Odorizzi innings before ultimately falling 5-4.
Odorizzi will look to win more decisively in his latest encounter opposite Kansas City. The Twins are 11-3 this season when Odorizzi starts.
Minnesota shines on both sides of the plate while ranking first among all American League teams in home runs and batting average and third in total team era.
The Twins boast a complete positional lineup, led by Max Keller’s 18 home runs & 49 RBI’s. Minnesota, having lost its last meeting June 16, 8-6 vs. KC, is 4-1 on the year opposite the Royals.
Kansas City Royals
That latest win against Minnesota shows the Royals can compete with the team sitting atop a division the Royals are buried in.
And as of this writing, Kansas City has won three straight, including a pair of upsets vs. Seattle.
Occasional RHP starter Glenn Sparkman (1-3, 4.41 ERA) gets the call tonight to help his charge complete another upset against Minnesota.
Through 42 innings pitched in 2019, Sparkman has allowed 45 hits & 21 runs. However, Kansas City is just 2-11 when Sparkman appears.
The Royals are struggling through another rebuild season and lack much hope on the horizon. Kansas City finds its offense and defense firmly entrenched among MLB’s least effective.
