Minnesota Twins fans must be feeling pretty great this morning after their side hit another eight-run winning game against the Angels on Tuesday to fully stem that five-game losing streak over the last week.
For the second time in two days against Los Angeles the Twins came from behind to take victory and, importantly, proved good throughout the innings with scores in the last three on each game.
Joe Mauer was again the leader on Tuesday night, recording his second straight four-hit game with three RBIs and adding a little bit of sparkle to what has been a dour week for Twins fans in the betting world.
The results couldn’t have come at a better time and now we can carry good form and confidence into our weekend series with the White Sox. Let’s face it, the team was still reeling from that 16-5 defeat to the Mets on Friday and that arguably cost us that second loss a day later.
What was nice to see on Tuesday was that we were hitting the ball and loading bases – something that cannot be said of our games over the weekend. Both Brian Dozier and Mauer secured RBIs late on thanks to the commitment earlier in those innings and there’s nothing a fan likes more than seeing a whole team earn runs.
Our series in Chicago this weekend promises to be captivating, for neither side has properly taken off in the MLB this season. Vance Worley is expected to start and needs a win after going 0-2 this season and getting hit all over the park against the Mets, while 3.93 ERA Jake Peavy is expected to pitch for the White Sox.
A winning series this weekend would take us above Chicago in the AL Central and although the White Sox have home advantage in this one our two eight-run victories means we have a good chance on Bet365 of hitting well again.
