Not many people would have thought that the Pirates would have a significantly better record than the Minnesota Twins at this stage of the season, but that is exactly where we find ourselves and the Pirates will now look to get themselves back to the .500 mark as they meetup with the struggling Twins at Target Field in Minneapolis.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have either tied, or won, their last 4 series and they have to love their chances of making that 5 series with the way the Minnesota Twins are playing right now, as it looks like the Pirates might be getting the Twins at just the right time.
The Pirates bats have really been the catalyst for the surprising start, as guys like Adam Frazier and Colin Moran are hitting respectable numbers and are coming up clutch in big moments as well.
Unfortunately though, this team has already experienced a major injury with Ke’Bryan Hayes going down with a left wrist injury and he was raking early on this season, so Pittsburgh will be desperate to get him back into the starting lineup as soon as possible.
The Twins fans should not be freaking out over the bad start to the season, as their are plenty of metrics to show that they are playing decent, but getting a bit unlucky, so I would expect the Twins to be there in the mix for a playoff spot towards the end of the season.
The biggest problem for the Twins this year has not really been their play, as they have decent numbers even though the wins are not there yet, but with the fact that they just cannot stay healthy with their injury report already having 10 names on it.
The Twins should be in position to take this win though, as they send Michael Pineda to the mound who has been stellar so far this year coming into this game with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 1 and I do not expect those numbers to get much worse against the Pirates.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
This has all the makings of a smash spot for Minnesota and I love them here at home laying the run and a half on the runline. It may seem a bit ridiculous at first glace to be laying -200 on a 6-11 team, but this Twins team is due for some major regression to the mean and the fact you get Pineda on the mound only makes this one sweeter.
It is also hard to believe in this Pirates team longer term and think the Twins up and down the lineup, even with the injuries, are still head and shoulders better than the visitors.
