Toronto Blue Jays
Toronto has enjoyed their trip to the Twin Cities thus far, taking the first two in the series vs. the Twins. The Blue Jays look to make it a third as the teams meet up 3/4 of the way through their 4 game set on Wednesday night.
Toronto’s thrilling 6-5 victory Tuesday was their 3rd in the last 4 games. The Blue Jays are still significantly below .500 on the year (7-11) and are just 4-6 over their last 10 but momentum is momentum.
The player tasked with keeping the win streak rolling is Trent Thornton, the rookie making his 4th career start. Thornton has pitched well overall with 2 ER and 0 ER allowed start, but he gave up 5 in 3 IP last time out.
The Twins offense has never faced Thornton so the debate is up whether that helps or hurts the O/U of 9 in this one. The Twins had won 4 of 5 at Target Field but consecutive losses to Toronto have their home field prowess in doubt for the year.
One reason for an under play on Wednesday is Jake Odorizzi taking the hill. The last time the right hander started at Target Field, he threw 6 innings of 1 hit ball while striking out 11 Indians batters.
Odorizzi has struggled in his two outings since the opener however, lasting just 0.2 at Philadelphia and 4.2 at the Mets despite allowing only 1 hit. Is home cooking what Odorizzi needs to get back on track?

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
Can the Blue Jays really pull off their third in a row at Target Field? Minnesota is a significant favorite but if Odorizzi gets back on track this at least points to a low scoring affair. Turnbull is an enigma as a rookie, but we’ve seen he can be lights out at times.
