Minnesota took down the White Sox 3-1 in the final game of their series, winning their 2nd straight series, and improving to 8-4 on the year. The Twins now sit in 1st place in the AL Central division, with a 1.5 game lead separating them from 2nd place. They’re currently the only team in that division with a positive run differential. Minnesota ranks 2nd in the MLB in runs allowed, having finally built a dangerous pitching staff.
The Yankees came back from an early 3-0 deficit against the Guardians, eventually winning the game 4-3. They’ve gone 2-1 in all four series’ so far this season. If they completed the season winning 2 out of every 3 games, they would finish 108-54. New York returns home for this series against the Twins, a team they do historically well against, with a chance to pick up another series win and keep the pressure on the Rays.
With both teams sitting at 8-4, this game could definitely go either way, That being said, the Yankees have a few notable advantages here. In addition to doing very well against the Twins each season, New York will have the home-field advantage in this game. Neither starting pitcher is weak, but the Yankees will have capable rookie Jhony Brito (0.90 ERA) on the mound. I expect him to maintain his success with a win.
