It's Make-or-Break Time for Playoff Hopeful Twins

The Minnesota Twins are riding a wave of momentum right now which is a promising sign for their bettors as the team embarks on a season-defining 11-game road trip. The Twinkies kick things off in the Bronx on Monday.

Shark Bites
  • The Twins are 4-11 SU in their last 15 games against the Yankees.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Yankees’ last five games with a closing total of 9.0 or more.
  • The Yankees are 7-1 SU in their last eight games against right-handed starting pitchers.

Ervin Santana and Jaime Garcia are expected to get the start for the Twins and Yanks, respectively. Santana (15-7, 3.35 ERA) is unbeaten in his last 10 starts and has recorded four victories in that stretch. The hurler is 9-2 with a 2.74 ERA in 14 starts on the road this season. Santana has thrown three complete games in that span.

Garcia (5-9, 4.35) hasn’t fared as well of late, going 0-2 with a 4.60 ERA in his last six outings. The 31-year-old gave up one earned run in each of his last two turns but was only able to pitch a total of 9.2 innings due to pitch counts.
