The Twins have won the first two games of his series and knocked around Kendall Graveman last night in a 7-3 win.
The Athletics have one more chance to salvage a game at Target Field and will send Jharel Cotton to the mound.
Cotton took some lumps in his last start at Houston, giving up 10 hits (but only three earned runs) in 4.1 innings. The A’s had jumped out to an early lead that sent the Astros into catch-up mode early. Houston’s aggressive approach seemed to bother Cotton.
He’s had three kind of sub-par starts this season and after the previous two, Cotton has bounced back nicely. He followed five earned in 4.1 innings against the Angels with seven scoreless against Kansas City. And he threw six innings of two-run ball against Seattle after Texas knocked him around a little bit.
Oakland hopes he continues this trend in the series finale.
The Twins have inserted Joe Mauer into the cleanup spot, behind Miguel Sano, to try and get their hometown star going. Mauer is slashing just .230/.287/.310 this season but was on base three times yesterday.
It’s four straight wins for the Twinkies, who will roll with Kyle Gibson on Thursday before the Red Sox come to town.
Gibson is 0-3 with a 1.84 WHIP and 8.06 ERA in 22.1 innings this season (five starts). Opponents are hitting .326 against him and he has walked 10 to 13 strikeouts.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction: the A’s salvage a game.
Between Cotton’s bounce back tendency and Gibson’s vulnerability, I figure the A’s will get one before they return home to host the Tigers.
