The Kansas City Royals will host the Minnesota Twins at Ewing M. Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri on Sunday, August 9, 2020 2:05 P.M, ET. This will be the final game in the 3 game series as the Twins will try to avoid getting swept after dropping games 1 and 2 to the Royals. The Twins are still on top of the American League even with a 3 game losing streak, but they need to stop this if they wish to continue to stay in the top 3. The Minnesota Twins are now 3rd in the American League with a 10-5 record, and are still 1st in the AL Central Division.

The Minnesota Twins were on a 6 game winning streak before they lost to the Pirates on Thursday, plus dropping game 1 and 2 to the Royals to get to where they are now. They had an excellent pitching effort when they had their streak, but recently allowed 18 runs in their 3 game losing skid. Nelson Cruz leads the Twins in offense with 19 hits and 15 runs batted in, while Jorge Polanco already has 17 hits and 7 runs so far this season. Max Kepler and Nelson Cruz both got solo homers in their last game, while Byron Buxton led the charge going 2 for 4 with a 3 run homer and 4 runs batted in during their loss. Jose Berrios will start on game 3 for the Twins. Berrios is now 1-1 with a 4.80 earned run average, and struck out 13 batters this season. He is 3-2 with a 4.29 ERA plus 63 strikeouts in his career against the Royals.

Minnesota Twins vs Kansas City Royals Predictions 8/9/2020

Kansas has the exact opposite thing going for them in relation with the Twins. They were on a 6 game losing streak, but now on their 3rd win streak heading into game 3. They were in the basement of the American League, but are climbing up now in the 12th spot. These last 3 wins were all against teams in the upper half of their league which surely built their confidence continuing with the season. Jorge Soler went 2 for 5 in their last game, with 2 home runs and 4 RBIs. Nicky Lopez chipped in a homer plus 2 RBIs, while Salvador Perez added a double and a solo bomb for the team. The Royals are now 12th in the American League with a 6-10 record, and are last place in the NL Central Division. Brady Singer will start for the Royals in game 3.

Minnesota Twins vs Kansas City Royals. MLB’s pick for game 3 will be the Minnesota Twins -164. The Royals are hot lately, but I doubt that they have what it takes to sweep the Twins with how strong they started this season. Minnesota is familiar with handling the Royals as they are 10-5 in their last 15 games, while Kansas is having a hard time in their own stadium getting a 5-11 record in their last 16 home games. Minnesota takes game 3 to avoid the sweep to a predicted score of 4-1.
