The Minnesota Twins won nine of 11 leading up to the All Star break, and I like them to book another win here in the opener of a three-game set at Kansas City Friday night.
KC left-hander Danny Duffy (5-8, 4.59 ERA) has been lit up home at Kauffman all season long, coming out of the All Star break with a 0-4 record paired with a 6.75 ERA in seven home starts.
Minnesota righty Kyle Gibson (4-6, 3.42 ERA) meanwhile has compiled a solid 2.84 ERA in nine road starts on the season, and he held KC scoreless through seven innings of a 2-1 win here at the K on May 29.
Twins are 20-6 in Gibson’s last 26 road starts vs. a team with a losing record. Royals are 6-18 in their last 24 vs. a team with a losing record.
Free pick on Minnesota Twins.
