A pair of AL Central Division opponents meet up Labor Day night as the Minnesota Twins head to Kauffman Stadium to take on the Kansas City Royals. The Royals, who have ran away with the AL Central division, continue their trek for home field advantage in the American League Playoffs.
As for the Twins, they continue their pursuit of the American League’s 2nd Wild Card and will try to take another step in the right direction with a road win over the Royals.
The Twins will go with LH Tommy Milone who will counter Yordano Ventura who will go for the home side.
First pitch is scheduled for 8:10 PM EST.
The Twins raced out of the gate early in the season to a rare AL Central Division lead. They quickly faded back to the pack and saw the Royals just completely run away with the division.
Now, they have 100% focus on the AL Wild Card, which they sit 1.5 games behind the 2nd Playoff spot. The problem, one loss can shift their position in the standings as the race is completely crowded.
Minnesota will try to hold onto third place in the Wild Card race and try to gain some ground with the Rangers as they send LH Tommy Milone to the hill. Milone comes in off a victory against the Chicago White Sox.
He pitched 7 scoreless innings allowing just 3 hits and striking out 7.
He’s faced the Royals 3 times in 2015 and is 1-0 with an ERA of 4.24.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals have had everything working here in 2015. They’ve been so good, they even sent Yordano Ventura down for literally one day and his whole season has been turned around.
Ventura was sent down after struggling with his command, but was immediately called back up when the Royals rotation had an injury. Since that day, Ventura has pitched like the young phenom the Royals have hoped he’d pan out to be.
Ventura has won 6 straight decisions and has struck out 11 hitters in each of his last 2 starts.
He comes in off a start that saw him allow just 1 run in 7.0 innings against the Tigers.
Over his last 5, Ventura is 4-0 with just a 1.13 ERA.
