Minnesota vs Toronto by Sors
In the point of fact, the Twins had some problems in April (10-12), but won eighteen of their previous twenty five games in May (18-7), including eleven from fourteen at Target Field in this period (11-3).
The Twins, who have .247 BA, with 33 runs and 7 HR from their last seven games, will face Aaron Sanchez in the second game of their three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Sanchez pitched well in most of his previous nine starts this season, as the right-hander surrendered three or fewer runs in seven of them, including 7 hits and 2 runs, while striking out four over 6 2/3 innings in a 8-2 win over Seattle last Sunday.
On the other hand, Sanchez went 1-2 with a 5.75 ERA in his previous four starts on the road in 2015, as in each of them he lasted less than six innings.
Like Minnesota, Toronto shows good efficiency in offense lately, as the Blue Jays have .273 BA, with 38 runs and 12 HR from their last seven games.The guests scored four or more runs in seven of their last ten away games, but won only three of them.
Kyle Gibson (4-3 with a 2.72 ERA), who will start for Minnesota, was outstanding in his last start, as the right-hander yielded just 1 run on 4 hits, while striking out eight over eight innings in a 8-1 win at Chicago last Sunday.
Gibson, who has posted a 1.40 ERA in four home starts so far in 2015, was almost perfect in his previous start versus Toronto, in which the right-hander surrendered 4 hits over eight scoreless innings in a 7-0 win at Target Field on April 17, with four strikeouts.
Josh Donaldson is 1-for-2, with a walk against him, Michael Sounders is 4-for-9, with a homer and a walk, but Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion, Justin Smoak, Ryan Goins and Ezequiel Carrera have a combined 0-for-12.
I think that Minnesota will manage to win the second game of this series against the Toronto Blue Jays.
