The A’s are reeling, as they have lost 5 in a row and 7 of their last 8 games. They are out of the playoff race and have the 2nd fewest wins in the AL.
In Game 1 of this series yesterday the Twins beat the A’s 6-3.
This season the Twins rank 21st in the Majors in runs scored and only 26th in team ERA.
The Twins’ pitching had been hammered in their 4-game skid giving up a total of 27 runs, but it was solid in only giving up 3 in their last game.
Adalberto Mejia (4-4 4.10 ERA) only lasted 4 innings in his last start giving up 2 earned runs in a 9-6 loss to the Detroit Tigers. The Twins have lost 2 of his last three starts where he gave up 6 earned runs in the losses.
Mejia’s last 4 starts have been at home and he has not started on the road since June 28th. His last 2 road starts have been good ones where he went 5 innings in each and did not give up any earned runs.
The Twins are 1-4 in Mejia’slast 5 starts facing a team that has a losing record.

Chris Smith (0-1 3.32 ERA) gave up 3 earned runs in 6 innings in his last start, which was a 4-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. After winning his first start of the season the A’s have lost his last two outings.
Smith has given up 5 earned runs in his last 2 starts, but has only received 5 runs of support from the lineup.
Smith has 2 career relief appearances facing Minnesota tossing three scoreless innings and has given up 2 hits. He is still looking for his first career win.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
In the last 4 games between these teams the Over record is 3-0-1 and, but with the pitching match up I don’t see a high scoring game so the Under is the pick.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
Smith will not get his first win in this game and while he won’t be bad he will give up a few runs. Like his last 2 starts he will not get much support and the Twins will win a low scoring game.
