Preview

The Twins being a three-game series against the Indians at Progressive Field tonight.  Minnesota is coming off a 2-1 series loss against AL leaders the Rays.  Their win last night to wrap up the series against Tamps Bay snapped a four-game losing streak which saw them averaging two runs per game in that stretch.  The Indians are still a few games off of a wild card spot but haven't given up hope.  They sit second in their division and are coming off of a 2-1 series loss to the Red Sox after sweeping the Royals.

Pitching matchup

Twins

Bailey Ober (2-2, 3.98 ERA) Bailey Ober will start his 17th game of the season for Minnesota.  The rookie pitcher is 2-2 with a 3.98 ERA from 74.2 innings so far where he was hit 73 times giving up 33 earned runs and 15 home runs.  He also walked 17 batters and struck out 77.  He pitched for 6 innings against the Indians earlier this season surrendering two ERs off five hits with three strikeouts and no walks.

Indians

Logan Allen (1-5, 6.62 ERA) Logan Allen will take the mound for his 10th start of the season.  Allen gave up 36 hits in 35.1 innings for 26 ERs, striking out 23 and walking 14 batters.  His 6.62 ERA is far from his career-best 3.38 ERA which he achieved in 2020 from ten innings in three games.  His WHIP in 2021 is 1.42

Prediction

The Indians have been in some high-scoring affairs recently and that trend should continue tonight.  The over / under being at 9.5 is achievable. 

PICK: Over 9.5 (-110)
