The Minnesota Twins and Seattle Mariners meet Saturday in MLB's action at T-Mobile Park.
The Minnesota Twins look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 14 games. The Twins have scored 26 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 12 games. The Minnesota Twins have won 14 of their last 15 games when scoring four or more runs. Jorge Polanco leads the Twins with 55 hits and 20 RBI while Eddie Rosario and Jonathan Schoop have combined for 81 hits and 53 RBI. Jose Berrios gets the ball, and he is 6-2 with a 3.05 ERA and 54 strikeouts this season. Berrios is 1-2 with a 4.05 ERA and 21 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Mariners have scored 1
The Twins are 7-1 in their last 8 Saturday games, 5-1 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 5 -1 in Berrios' last 6 starts. The Mariners are 4-12 in their last 16 home games, 17-5 in LeBlanc's last 22 home starts and 24-11 in LeBlanc's last 35 starts. The Twins are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings and 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The over is 7-0 in LeBlanc's last 7 home starts. The over is 5-2 in Berrios' last 7 road starts.
LeBlanc has a ton of success with the M's, especially at home, but he just has not done in a month due to oblique injury. The Minnesota Twins continue to show up offensively and Berrios has been released for seven of his nine starts. I'll return the Twins again here.
