Minnesota takes on the Rays Friday evening in Tropicana Field. The Twins have been red hot and won six of their last eight games, while the Rays have been playing better themselves, winning six of their last eight as well.
Ervin Santana takes the mound for the Twins and is 4-9 with a 3.66 ERA and 1.25 WHIP.
Blake Snell is hurling for the Rays and is 3-4 with a 3.08 ERA and 1.43 WHIP.
The Twins are suddenly scoring with the best of them, they’ve generated 48 runs over their last six games! That’s an average of eight runs per game.
They are doing it in every way right now but still haven’t received the kind of pitching they would need to win consistently and are way out of the playoffs.
They allow 5.2 runs per game which is third worst in the MLB and even though Santana has just a 3.66 ERA, his record is just 4-9.
The bullpen struggles mightily but with Santana on the mound, the Twins have a chance with the way they’ve been scoring.
He’s given up just six runs in his last three starts combined over 22 innings pitched.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays have found the scoreboard more frequently themselves as of late. They just put up a 12 spot against the Royals on Wednesday night and have scored 33 runs over their last seven games.
However, besides that 12 spot, in three of their last four games they’ve scored just five runs.
They are still one of the worst offensive teams in the league so I’m going to say they look like they are coming back down to earth again.
Blake Snell has been pretty solid for the Rays with his 3.08 ERA which is one of the top ERA’s in the league.
However, his WHIP is quite high at 1.43 and his record demonstrates the Rays inability to give him run support.
In his last four starts, he’s been incredible. He’s given up just six runs in total over 24 innings pitched.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
The pitching matchup is even in this one but I’ll give the slight edge to the Rays since they allow less runs per game on the season and Snell does have the better ERA.
The offense is going heavily to the Twins with the way they’ve been producing runs and this will ultimately decide the outcome.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Twins ML
This game will have the chance of blowing open for the Twins but it’s much more likely this game stays low scoring since Snell has been rock solid.
