The Minnesota Twins head to Detroit very close winning their first American League Central title since 2010. Their magic number to clinch the division coming into this contest is three, and I have no doubt a motivated Twins team will score plenty of runs tonight.
Detroit righty Spencer Turnbull (3-15, 4.66 ERA) is coming off five innings of one-run ball at Cleveland, but he had not missed many bats in recent starts prior to that. Between Aug 20 and Sep 12, Turnbull gave up four runs or more in five straight starts, including six runs on eight hits in 4 2/3 innings of an 8-3 loss to Minnesota at Target Field.
As for Minnesota starter Jake Odorizzi (14-7, 3.59 ERA), the right-hander is 5-1 with a 3.25 ERA in 11 career starts against Detroit. His last outing against them was not overly impressive though with three runs surrendered over five innings of work.
The over is 8-1-1 in the last 10 meetings.
