Undefeated since the All Star break and sporting a top-ten offense and pitching staff, Oakland looks to improve its wild card chances tonight vs. Minnesota.
Oakland is 2-1 this season opposite Minnesota. Further, the competitive gap is much closer in actuality than on paper as the A’s navigate a much tougher division than the AL Central-leading Twins.
That stated, Mike Fiers (9-3, 3.61 ERA) seeks redemption after giving up five hits and two runs through six innings on July 3 as Minnesota bested Oakland 4-3.
Mitch Garver drove in two runs that evening during a nip-tuck, 14-inning encounter that represents Minnesota’s lone 2019 win vs. the A’s.
Having lost two straight, including a 3-2 Tuesday night gridlock against the backsliding Mets, the onus lies on Minnesota to prove it can even its season-series with Oakland.
Just 2-3 in their last five outings, the Twins have struggled a bit over the past month. In those losses, offense has been lacking for a top-three offensive club.
Tonight, the Twins will seem spark from a dormant bunch against quality opposition.
Kyle Gibson (8-4, 4.03 ERA) looks to rebound tonight after being pulled after three innings during Minnesota’s recent 5-3 win vs. Cleveland.
That night the Indians gained all three runs off Gibson before the Twins’ bullpen, and bats, ensured comeback victory.

Free Oakland A’s vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
While not a division leader, Oakland is currently playing at a higher level than Minnesota. More so, the A’s tote better pitching into tonight’s contest while Gibson’s main weakness of giving up the long ball plays into Oakland’s greatest strength (152 HR’s, #6 MLB).
4* Free MLB Betting Pick:
Expect a hard fough duel tonight between quality American League clubs, with Oakland pulling away late to solidify another post All Star victory. The A’s are slightly better than Minnesota head-to-head and will again prove themselves.
