The Minnesota Twins will travel to Ewing M. Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri to take on the Kansas City Royals on Friday, August 7, 2020 8:05 P.M, ET. The Kansas City Royals and the Minnesota Twins will face each other for the 1st time this season. Both teams are coast to coast in terms of standings in the American League which should make this an interesting series. The Minnesota Twins are now sitting pretty in the top spot of the American League with a 10-3 record, and are the leader of the AL Central Division.

The Twins are scorching hot entering this season with the best record of the American League, winning 9 of their last 11 games. They have 17 runs in their last 3 games, and recently had a 6 game winning streak that was halted by the Pirates in their last game. The Twins are making 5.31 runs per game which is 7th in the league. Their total of 17 home runs made is 7th in the league. Nelson Cruz is leading the charge for the Twins with 19 hits with 15 runs batted in. Jorge Polanco and Max Kepler chipped in a combination of 26 hits and 15 RBIs.

Minnesota Twins vs Kansas City Royals Predictions 8/7/2020

The Royals are in desperate need for wins as they are now the bottom dwellers of the American League, losing 6 of their last 7 games. The Royals were impressive in their last game though, where they destroyed a strong Chicago Cubs 13-2. This was their 4th year of the season, and their 1st win at home. If Kansas can play their offense like they did in their last game, they have a great chance to climb the AL. Whit Merrifield leads the Royals with 17 hits and 11 RBIs, while Maikel Franco and Salvador Perez combine for 31 hits and 17 RBIs. The Royals are dead last in the American League with a record of 4-10, and are 5th in the AL Central Division. Jakob Junis will get the starting position for the Royals in game 1. He is now 0-0 with a 4.15 ERA and 2 strikeouts this season. Junis is 0-1 with a 4.28 ERA and 40 strikeouts in his career against the Twins.

Minnesota Twins vs Kansas City Royals. MLB’s pick for the game will go to the Minnesota Twins -170. Kansas City exploded in their last game, but on how they played for the season it looks like it will be a long time that they will give us the same feat. Junis on the starting post is also hard to trust as he had a below average game against the White Sox. The Twins are just too strong right now with the momentum on their side. The Royals are also bad in their own field getting 9 wins in their last 34 home games, and are 2-8 in their last matchup against Minnesota.  The Twins will win this match to a predicted score of 9-4.
