Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays are struggling at the worst possible time right now. They are currently fighting for a wild card spot.
With a record of 85-69, they are in 3rd place of the American League East. They trail the Yankees by 2 games and the Red Sox by 3 games.
Before this series with Minnesota, Toronto lost 2 games out of 3 to the Rays. In those games, the Jays scored 9 runs and allowed 15 runs.
Jose Berrios went 6 innings and allowed 3 earned runs on Friday.
Alek Manoah has been good this year. He is 7-2 with an ERA of 3.36. His last start was against the Rays, where he went 6 innings and allowed 2 earned runs. Toronto won that game 4-2.
The pitching on this team has been much improved. They have an ERA of 3.92, which is the 9th best in the game.
This club has been very good on offense throughout the year, but it has not done much in this series.
Toronto has blasted 243 home runs, which is the best in the sport.
The Twins have played very poorly this year. Most people had them being much better than this.
With a record of 69-85, they are in the last place of the American League Central. The White Sox lead them by 18 games.
Before this series, Minnesota beat the Cubs for two games. In that series, the Twins scored 14 runs and allowed 9 runs.
Bailey Ober went 5.1 innings and allowed 1 earned run on Friday.
Griffin Jax has not been great this year. He is 3-4 with an ERA of 6.75. His last start was against the Cubs, where he went 3 innings and allowed 3 earned runs. Minnesota won that game 9-5.
The main reason this team has such a poor record is because of their pitching. They have an ERA of 4.85, which is the 26th best overall.
The offense has not been their main issue. The club is scoring 4.51 runs per game, which is the 16th best in the sport.
Minnesota has hit 217 home runs, which is the 4th best overall.

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
The Blue Jays did really have to improve their play if they wish to make the wild card. Even though they have dropped the first 2 games, I do feel as though they can bounce back.
Toronto is the better team, but they have not shown that so far in this series. With all the talent this team has, there is no excuse for them to lose to the Twins.
I look for Alek Manoah to keep up his good pitching and for the Jays to hit around Jax.
I like Toronto in this one.
