The ALDS between the New York Yankees and Minnesota Twins shifts from Yankee Stadium to Goal Field for Game 3.
The Twins are down to their last dying gasp since they want a win to keep alive. The divisional round may be cruel to a team who cant find their claws. It is imperative not to slip up in 2 and Game 1 with it taking 3 wins to proceed into another round.
Without having played a match in Minnesota the Twins are at risk of being bounced against the Yankees at a sweep on Monday. The Yankees are currently favored over the Twins in the series. Before Game 1 was played they were, but you can now get the Twins in +1200 to triumph, while the Yankees are priced at -6600.
Considering both games must be won by the Twins in Minnesota and go back to Yankee Stadium. Certainly wilder things have occurred, although it seems somewhat impossible for the Twins. They will get to learn to overcome the Yankees quickly. The Twins are losers in four straight games from the Yankees, including their losses in Yankee Stadium.
The most recent win over the Yankees of minnesota was at Goal Field on July 22nd. They had been to a six-game win streak before dropping at the season finale to the Royals. Either avoid its time for your offseason in Minnesota or a four-game losing streak Monday.
Their nurturing got clobbered with 18 runs, at New York. This was the big concern. They dont possess the firepower of rotations in the postseason, so we knew that it was going to be hard for their pitching team. It will be up to Jake Odorizzi, that has a career year to repay the Yankees bats down. He will be countered by Luis Severino, who is making his fourth start of the year.

Luis Severino made only three starts in the regular season. After working himself back from injury all season, the Yankees gave him a few outings to shake the rust off . He looked at midseason form with showings from the Angels and Blue Jays and made the most of it. I wouldnt say he had a fantastic game in the season finale against the Rangers. Severino acquired a bit crazy with a bang, 4 walks, and two earned runs allowed from Arlington in 3 innings of work. That has been his road start of this season.
Severino ended the day with an ERA of 6.00 and 1.67 WHIP against the Rangers in that competition. As theyve recorded 8 runs against him in 66 at-bats the Twins have been in a position to dent against Severino. So, getting their offense going and discovering runs shouldnt be hopeless against Severino on Monday night. Remember this is actually the very same Twins group that have been 2nd in the regular year with 5.76 runs scored per match. The Twins are going to have an opening to get into this collection if Severino gets out of whack like that he did at Texas.
It is also likely to require some standout performance by Odorizzi. He posted a career-high ERA of 3.51 using a minimal 30 starts in 2019. It outshines his debut season with the Twins a season ago. After spending five years in Tampahe came to Minnesota with tons of expectations. It did not work out to him in 2018, since he finished with an ERA of 4.49.
Odorizzi heads into this individual with a 2.65 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in his final three starts of the season. Without letting more than 3 runs at a performance, hes gone straight outings. In seven of ten starts, 2 or fewer runs have been enabled by Odorizzi. Odorizzi also has had adequate success against the Yankees. They are hitting .240 against him 242 at-bats, which is respectable given the Yankees firepower offensively.
His very best work has arrived at Target Field, where hes posted an ERA of 3.42 instead of a 3.62 ERA in the street. Expect the Twins to Provide the Yankees a battle tonight. The Twins seem like great value to expand it for one more game, although the Yankees are most likely winning this series.
