The MLB is back on the schedule today as the Atlanta Braves will clash with Minnesota Twins.
This is game two of a three-game series. The Twins took game one of this series by a score of 5-3. The Braves will give the nod to Mike Foltynewicz and the Twins will counter with Jose Berrios.
Atlanta Braves Form
The Braves have been poor lately as they lost two of the last three games. They lost two games against the Red with another loss in the first game of this series against the Twins. However, it is important to emphasize that they were at 3-3 but Chris Martin hit a surprising two-run walk-off homer.
Nevertheless, the Braves still have a 6.0 game lead over the Phillies and Nationals in the National League East. This is a good team and there is a lot more to come from them.
On the offensive side of the game, the Braves score an average of 5.29 runs per game which is the 7th record in the league in scoring. Also, they are on the 7th spot in hitting at .262 and 7th in homers with 177. On the mound, they are placed on the 10th in the league in ERA at 4.33. The Braves are 21st in WHIP at 1.39 and 17th in K’s with 966.
Minnesota Twins Form
The Twins are heading into this game with a winning momentum on their side. Moreover, they have been dominant in the series against the Royals as they won all three games. Also, they managed to keep that strong form as they win the first game against the Braves. And now, this Minnesota has seven of their last eight games and they have their lead in the American League Central back up to four games over the Cleveland Indians.
The Twins are having a good season and there is a lot more to come from them in the playoffs.
On the offensive side of the game, the Twins are the 2nd best team in the league in scoring, putting up 5.78 runs per game. Also, they are placed on the 4th in hitting at .270 and 1st in homers with 219. On the mound, they are 6th in the league in ERA at 4.00. The Twins are ranking 5th in WHIP at 1.26 and 12th in K’s with 985.
This will be an interesting game and both teams have a good chance to win the game. However, my pick here is the Twins as they have the 2nd best offence in the league. Also, they are in better form right now.
Therefore, I expect a win for Minnesota in this game.
