Why you should support the Twins
Minnesota was dominant in the first two games of the series, en route to a 6-1 victory on Monday and a 6-2 win on Tuesday. Right fielder Max Kepler had three hits and Joey Gallo homered in the series opener, while starting pitcher Joe Ryan on Tuesday became the first pitcher to win five games this season. Second baseman Jorge Polanco and designated hitter Byron Buxton each had two hits in the second game of the series.
On Wednesday-afternoon, they face an erratic starting pitcher, as New York’s Domingo German has already given up four earned runs twice this season. The Yankees have been held to three points or less 10 times in their last 12 games and are riding a season-high three-game losing streak. Minnesota is a 12-4 favorite this season, making Wednesday’s game a profitable place to support the Twins. See which team to choose here.
Why you should support the Yankees
German was inconsistent through his first four starts, but he was outstanding against Minnesota on April 15. He retired the first 16 batters and struckout 11 batters, allowing one earned run in 6.1 strong innings. Meanwhile, Minnesota starter Kenta Maeda is 0-3 with a 4.15 ERA so far this season after giving up his last start in the second inning.
The Twins are outside the top 20 in the majors in team batting average and have not swept New York in a streak in 32 years. First baseman Anthony Rizzo leads New York with a .286 average, five home runs and 11 RBI. Midfielder Aaron Judge has six home runs, while third baseman DJ LeMahieu hits .296.
