The Minnesota Twins and Los Angeles Angels meet Sunday in MLB action at Angel Stadium. The Minnesota Twins need a win after losing 4 of their last 5 games. The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after winning 6 of their last 9 games.
The Minnesota Twins have scored 12 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 5 of their last 10 games. The Twins have won 7 of their last 8 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Luis Arraez leads the Twins with 127 hits and 37 RBI, while Carlos Correa and Gio Urshela have combined for 176 hits and 86 RBI. Chris Archer gets the ball, and he is 2-5 with a 4.02 ERA and 66 strikeouts this season. Archer is 6-2 with a 2.50 ERA and 68 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Los Angeles Angels have scored 10 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 6 of their last 10 games. The Angels have won 5 straight games when scoring 4 or more runs. Shohei Ohtani leads the Angels with 104 hits and 67 RBI, while Taylor Ward and Jared Walsh have combined for 175 hits and 85 RBI. Tucker Davidson gets the ball, and he is 1-3 with a 7.91 ERA and 11 strikeouts this season. This will be Davidson’s first career game against the Twins.
The Twins are 2-6 in their last 8 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series. The Angels are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 9-25 in their last 34 home games. The over is 5-2 in Twins last 7 overall. The under is 4-1 in Angels last 5 home games. The Twins are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Los Angeles.
Chris Archer continues to be hit or miss, and he’s been missing lately, with 14 runs allowed in his last 17 innings. Tucker Davidson has allowed 21 hits and 17 runs in 19.1 innings this season. The Los Angeles Angels offense has also picked up over the last week. Two subpar at best pitchers and a reasonable total, I have to lean toward the over in this spot.
