The Twins and Pirates will shift their series from Target Field to PNC Park on Wednesday. Minnesota was able to take both the games from Pittsburgh the last two days, 5-4 and 7-3.
One thing Pittsburgh can take from the two games in the Twin Cities was that they could have easily had a split. The Bucs took a 4-0 lead into the 6th on Monday but ultimately fell 5-4.
The Twins offense continues to be impressive as they have run their winning streak to five games. Minnesota has built up a 2.5 game lead in the AL Central but have played just one series on the road thus far.
It’s kind of looking like it doesn’t matter where Rocco Baldelli’s team plays right now. The Twins are 8th in the league in scoring and 3rd in home runs. Wednesday’s total does seem low at 9 in that regard.
With such a great offense, the pitching has kind of been overlooked for Minnesota but they rank 4th in the league in team ERA. Pittsburgh-area native Randy Dobnak gets the start for Minnesota after allowing 1 ER in two starts.
Pittsburgh has already fallen to 6.5 games back from the Cubs in the NFL Central as the Pirates have begun the year just 2-9. Tuesday’s loss to the Twins was the 5th in a row for the Pirates.
It’s hard to see the Pirates offense getting much going on Thursday back at PNC Park as it’s Dobnak’s first appearance against the team. The Pirates have started the season 1-2 on their own field.
Trevor Williams gets the unenviable task of facing Minnesota in this one. Williams is sporting a 5.40 ERA after two starts this year which isn’t far off from his 7-9, 5.38 ERA in 2019.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Twins are 58-22 last 70 road games

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction:
The price isn’t even that horrible the way Minnesota has shamed Pittsburgh on Monday and then dominated them on Tuesday. Expect a big night from Dobnak pitching against his childhood team.
