Preview: Minnesota was able to win the series finale in Cleveland on Sunday, the second straight road series it has done that in to avoid a sweep. Now it heads into Boston trying to get back to .500 for the year in the start of this four-game set.
Minnesota has split its last eight games and it is hoping to get Vance Worley into the win column for the first time in a Twins uniform. He has been very inconsistent and is coming off a rough start in Detroit where he allowed six runs on 10 hits in just 4.2 innings. The good news is that the last time be blew up, allowing six runs against the Mets, he bounced back with a quality start next time out and I expect a similar result here. Boston was playing very well before this weekend as it got swept at Texas and we may finally be seeing this team starting to come back down to earth. The offense has put up just seven runs the last four games and it will be tough for even Clay Buchholz to keep his run going with no support. He has been outstanding as he is 6-0 with a 1.01 ERA and 0.96 WHIP in six starts, all of which have been quality outings. His last outing though he was accused of using a foreign substance and whether true or not, that could be a huge mental issue going into this game. His current run is not going to last forever and he has been hit or miss against the Twins throughout his career, posting a 4.25 ERA over five starts. The price is right for the Twins to come away with the upset on Monday. Play (961) Minnesota Twins.
