Minnesota Twins vs Los Angeles Angels (By: Mulder)

ACE Berrios will start for the Twins. The Rightie is 6-1 with a 2.53 ERA and has very big command to go with: 1.35 BB/9.

He has a 8.61 K/9 but at home a much better 1.98 ERA, 0.66 BB/9 (!), 9.88 K/9 (!).

He is coming from a gem as he pitched 7 scoreless innings in Toronto : 0 BB, 5 K.

He allowed 5 runs against the Angels last season, but this outing came on the road.

For LA we will see Tyler Skaggs on the mound. The southpaw is 3-3 with a 4.70 ERA. He pitched not that much better than his ERA is showing us: 8.22 K/9, 2.93 BB/9, 33.0 GB%.

On the road he is 1-3 with a 6.38 ERA and a 1.96 HR/9.

Skaggs posted a 2.08 ERA , 1.08 WHIP last season against the Twins, but the twins were not hitting lefties that well last season.

Indeed, this season they rock Southpaws with a .358 wOBA, ranked 3rd (!).

Not so strange because new signings Cron ( former Angels ), Cruz and Schoop are all smashing lefties.

Hence backing Minnesota.
