Houston Astros vs Minnesota Twins Predictions 9/30/2020

Minnesota scored their 1st and only point in the contest when Nelson Cruz got an RBI in the game to go along with his 1 hit. They would blow the lead when they allowed the Astros 4 points in the later innings. Byron Buxton, Jorge Polanco, and Miguel Sano all had 1 hit each in the game. Sergio Romo picked up the loss after pitching 0.2 scoreless innings. Nelson Cruz led the offense for the team this season with 56 hits and 15 homers at .303 BAA while Eddie Rosario 42 RBIs. Minnesota had a decent offensive run this year with 269 total on a .242 BAA in 18th place while they have the 4th best pitching staff in the league with a team ERA of 3.58. Minnesota ranks 2nd in the American League with a 36-24 record and is 1st in the AL Central Division. Jose Berrios will start for the team in the 2nd game. He recorded 5-4 with a 4.00 ERA and 68 strikeouts last season. 

Houston Astros vs Minnesota Twins. MLB’s pick for the game is the Minnesota Twins -150. Since the starter for the Astros is still not known at the time it’s safe to say that Berrios is doing pretty well for the Twins in the starter position. He allowed 5 earned runs in his last 16 innings which is acceptable, to say the least. He does not have all-star stats but it’s enough to help the Twins get back in game 2. Houston records 2-5 in their last 7 road games versus Minnesota. The Twins will bring down the Astros to a predicted score of 6-2.
