MLB Betting Notes: Carrasco and Berrios Meet Again in Divisional Duel

Minnesota’s offense has showed signs of life the past two days — scoring eight runs in consecutive contests (both losses). However, those outbursts came against two starters making their MLB debuts. They won’t have that same fortune tonight, as they will face Carlos Carrasco — the 2017 AL wins leader.

The Twins will counter with their ace, Jose Berrios, which will set up a rematch of the pitchers’ duel in Puerto Rico in mid-April earlier this season. Minnesota won that game 2-1 in 16 innings in a game that saw both Berrios and Carrasco pitch seven scoreless innings.

Ultimately, the Twins didn’t carry any momentum from that win, finishing the rest of April with a 1-10 record. They ended the month of May in similar fashion, losing seven of eight after a defeat on Thursday night. Let’s kick off June baseball by looking at whether Berrios can get the Twins on track in a division they find themselves now trailing the Indians by 6.5 games.
