Minnesota Twins (28-34, 11-17 Away) at Detroit Tigers (31-36, 21-16 Home)

MLB: Wednesday, June 13, 2018, Comerica Park, Detroit, Michigan, 7:10 PM ET

The Minnesota Twins was in a fine form of four victories since the start of this month, but four defeats in the following six games helped the Cleveland Indians to create a seven-win gap in the AL Central. On the other hand, the Detroit Tigers are also not playing well right now, losing six out of the previous nine games, but they still have a better record than the Twins.

The pitching matchup for Wednesday’s tilt will give us Jose Berrios for the Minnesota Twins against the Detroit Tigers’ Matthew Boyd. First pitch was set for 7:10 PM ET.

The Twins closed the series with the Angels with a win

Minnesota spent 11 games at home and lost the opening two of the three-game series with the Los Angeles Angels, scoring just three runs in the process, but responded with a 7-5 victory in the final tilt. The Twins got to a 2-1 lead after the first inning and despite Los Angeles’ two runs in the fourth inning, Minnesota answered with five in the next two innings to secure a deserved win. Jake Cave had an excellent game and recorded three hits with a pair of runs, playing a vital role in the Twins’ victory.

Jose Berrios is listed as a starting pitcher against the Detroit Tigers, and he’s coming from a 14-8 record in 2017, a 3.89 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, 48 walks, and 138 strikeouts in 26 games in total. Berrios started 13 games in this season and has seven wins and five losses as he pitched 83 innings, allowing 63 hits and 34 runs with 14 walks and 84 strikeouts. The 4-1 in Berrios’ last five starts; 5-0 in Berrios’ previous five Wednesday starts, while they are 7-0 in Berrios’ last seven starts vs. American League Central opponents.

The Tigers are looking to bounce back after a big loss to Cleveland

Detroit faced the divisional rivals the Cleveland Indians in the previous series at home and suffered two defeats including the latest one, 9-2, which came as a result of a disappointing offensive performance. The Tigers trailed since the second inning, and the offense failed to compensate for the lenient defense that allowed 24 bases and 14 hits to the Indians, so the big defeat was inevitable.

Matthew Boyd is set to start against the Minnesota Twins, and he’s coming from a 6-11 record in 2017, a 5.27 ERA, a 1.56 WHIP, 53 walks, and 110 strikeouts in 26 games overall. Boyd started 12 games in this campaign and has four wins and four losses as he pitched 70 innings, allowing 51 hits and 25 runs with 26 walks and 54 strikeouts. The Tigers are 5-1 in Boyd’s last six starts, while they are 1-11 in Boyd’s previous 12 starts vs. American League Central opponents.

Trends:

Minnesota:

  • 5-2 in their last seven vs. American League Central rivals
  • 6-1 in Berrios’ last seven starts vs. an opponent with a losing record
  • 4-1 in Berrios’ last five starts on grass

Detroit:

  • 20-42 in their last 62 vs. American League Central rivals
  • 8-17 in their last 25 games played on Wednesday
  • 2-7 in their last nine games vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15

Minnesota won nine out of the previous 11 H2H encounters including three out of the last four, while the Twins were victorious in the past five meetings at the Comerica Park. The Tigers are 0-4 in Boyd’s last four starts vs. Twins, and the recent H2H history is entirely on Minnesota’s side, so I am backing the visitors on this one. When it comes to the points, under is 5-0 in the last five duels.

The Pick: Minnesota
