Jonathan Schoop hit a two-run homer in the top of the seventh inning against Mike Minor to put Minnesota in front for good on Friday night. The Twins padded their threadbare lead in the AL Central with a 4–3 win.
Before Schoop, Max Kepler went deep for the 33rd time this season, a two-run homer that put him back in front of the injured Nelson Cruz for the Minnesota team lead. Kepler and Schoop accounted for all four Minnesota runs.
Jake Odorizzi came an out shy of getting through six. The sixth was when he gave up two runs and the lead before having to come out. Tyler Duffey ended up getting the win by simply striking out the only man he faced in the sixth.
Sergio Romo got the save but not before putting the trying and winning runs on base. I just don’t trust him in the eighth and ninth but evidently he’s the best option Rocco Baldelli has at the moment.
Lance Lynn pitched for Minnesota in the first half of last season before being traded to the Yankees. Martin Perez pitched for Texas last season, as well as the six years prior. They will each face their former clubs on Sunday.
For Minnesota, Perez has been solid. He’s made 21 starts and three appearances out of the bullpen with a league-average ERA and a 1.45 WHIP.
Lance Lynn didn’t get off to the best start as a Ranger but he’s been excellent as the weather has warmed up. Despite leading the league with a dozen wild pitches, he’s got a 140 ERA+ in 25 starts (160 innings). For the second consecutive season, he’s striking out double-digits per nine innings.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction: Texas.
I’ll get behind Lynn as home, who may just fetch plus-money. He may give up a homer or two so it’s imperative that he keeps the bases empty as often as possible.
