Toronto Blue Jays vs. Minnesota Twins Preview, Prediction, and Odds| May 11, 2024

The Blue Jays host the Twins in their second of three games.

The Toronto Blue Jays(17-21) host the Minnesota Twins(23-15) in the second game of their three-game set on Saturday afternoon.

Toronto lost 3-2 on Wednesday night due to their offense struggling to drive in runners. The team was 1-of-6 with runners in scoring position yesterday. Offensive struggles are nothing new for the team as they have scored the third-fewest runs in all of Major League Baseball. The Blue Jays wasted a masterful performance by Starting Pitcher Yusei Kikuchi who surrendered two earned runs over eight innings of work.

The Twins are the hottest team in the league. They have won 16 of their last 18 games. Minnesota was powered by a strong pitching performance by Starting Pitcher Joe Ryan on Friday night. He gave up only one run over seven innings. Minnesota never trailed on Friday night and had three different players with an RBI on their way to another victory.

Will the Minnesota Twins continue their winning ways or will the Blue Jays walk away with a much-needed win as they look to turn their season around?

Key Stats

Kevin Gausman takes the mound today for the Blue Jays. He is 2-3 on the year with a 3.78 ERA. He is coming off a solid start where he tossed 5.1 scoreless innings against the Washington Nationals. Toronto’s sluggish offense is led by Left Fielder Daulton Varsho who leads the team in both home runs (six) and RBI (16).

Minnesota Twins

Simeon Woods Richardson will take the ball for the Twins this afternoon. He has been extremely effective this season with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 1.74. He held the Seattle Mariners to one hit over six innings during his last outing. Minnesota’s strong offense is led by Catcher Ryan Jeffers. He is top 20 in the league in batting average, home runs, and OPS.

Game Prediction

It does not make much sense why the Twins are the underdogs on the road today. Minnesota is playing much better, riding a seven-game road winning streak entering the game. They are also the better team by virtually every metric. The Twins will defeat the Jays in a low-scoring game meaning the under is the play in this American League showdown.

Final Pick

Minnesota Twins ML (+130) U 7.5 Runs (EVEN)
