Min Twins at NY Yankees
In tonight’s matchup, we will see the Twins taking on the New York Yankees. This will be the first game of the 4-game series between the two running from today to Sunday. Both of these teams have started their season very well with 8-4 records and it looks like they could both have a shot at winning their respective divisions. Both of these teams have won 4 of their last 5 games in mostly low scoring affairs. The Yankees have had only one game in their last five that has gone over 10 runs. The Twins are in the same boat as besides their game with the Astros where 15 runs were scored, none of their games have gone over 7 runs. So, is this going to change tonight?
The starting pitchers tonight will be Joe Ryan for the Twins and Jhony Brito for the Yankees. Jhony Brito has been playing out of his mind to start the season. He has a 2-0 record and has given up only one earned run in his two starts. Also, in these two starts he has struck out eight and only give up FIVE HITS. His ERA is sitting at 0.9 and I don’t know if a pitcher could have a better start to the season than Brito has had. The Twins pitcher, Joe Ryan, has also been pretty good to start the season. He is 2-0 just like Brito and he has only given up 6 hits in those 2 games. However, he is sitting with in ERA of 3.75 because of the 4 earned runs he gave up against the Astros, and he has been part of some pretty high scoring games.
Both of these pitchers have been finding a way to win and both of these teams have been finding a way to win, so who has the advantage tonight.
The answer to that question is the Yankees. The Yankees have a better line-up than the Twins. They pay their players a shit ton of money and they can win games, as long as they aren’t in the playoffs. And until Jhony Brito shows me that someone can hit against him, I won’t be betting against him.
