The Twins were overmatched in Boston this week and ended up losing three out of four. David Price, Joe Kelly and Craig Kimbrel combined to hold them to three runs for a 6-3 Boston win in the finale.
There probably isn’t a duo that means more to its collective pitching staff than Ervin Santana and Jose Berrios. The Twins’ rotation drops off precipitously after those two and the bullpen is weak. Those two guys will go in the first two games of this weekend’s series.
Santana has made 16 starts and hasn’t allowed two runs, three runs or four. He’s given up either one or zero 11 times and more than five in the other five. Three of those bad outings have come in his last five.
He’s made one start against the Royals this season – his first appearance of the year – and gave up two hits in seven innings.
Kansas City Royals
Kansas City counters with its ace, Jason Vargas. He leads the American League with 11 wins and a 2.29 ERA. He started the season well and has been even better lately, a winner of six starts in a row.
Vargas has given up 87 hits in just over 94 innings but a lot of those are singles and few are homers (8). He’s also walked just 20 batters.
The Royals are off of dropping two of three in Detroit, where Mike Moustakas hit his 20th home run on Wednesday. The Moose is has shown power that we hadn’t seen before this season.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction: advantage Kansas City in a low-scoring game.
The sooner the Royals can get the Minnesota’s bullpen, the better. That and the home field are KC’s two advantages. I’m with the -120 price but the total is much too high.
