The Minnesota Twins are scheduled to face the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Monday, August 3, 2020, 8:10 P.M, ET. The Pittsburgh Pirates are going to have to bring every kind of weapon in their arsenal as they face a strong team in the American League, the Minnesota Twins. They are the same team who broke the record of most runs made last year. Pittsburgh is now at the bottom of the National League with a 2-7 record, and is 5th and last place in the NL Central Division.

The Pirates are having a disappointing and rough start to the season. Being 4 games below the .500 mark, they need to make something happen if they want to salvage the season. Fresh from a loss against the Chicago Cubs at 2-1, the squad will want to bounce back coming into this new series. Pittsburg only had 6 hits during the ballgame, while Mitch Keller took the loss allowing 2 runs of 5 hits, 1 walk, and a strikeout in 2.2 innings. Josh Bell, Philip Evans, Adam Frazier, and Jacob Stallings each chipped in a base hit in the Buc’s losing effort.

Derrick Holland will start for the Pirates this Monday. He is 0-0 with a 3.18 earned run average this season. This will be his 2nd start for the season. He did not factor in his last start against the Brewers, where he allowed 2 runs on 2 hits, and 3 walks in 5.2 innings. Holland is 3-7 with a 5.56 ERA, and 57 strikeouts in his career against the Twins.

The Twins are having a stellar start to this new season. They have the best record in 9 games at 7-2 since the 2001 season. Minnesota will ride their momentum after defeating the Indians in their last game. The Twins got 6 hits in that game, where 3 of those were solo home runs. Miguel Sano and Eddie Rosario both went in deep to cap off Minnesota’s offense for the game. The Twins are now at the 2nd spot in the American League at 7-2, and are 1st in the AL Central Division. Southpaw Lewis Thorpe will start for Minnesota in game 1 of the series. He is now 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and 1 strikeout the current season.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs Minnesota Twins. MLB’s pick for the game will be the Minnesota Twins -1.5. Minnesota could possibly sweep the Pirates in this series.
