It was a big game for Shohei Ohtani, as he had three hits in the game, including a home run. It was his third home run in five games. He also had two doubles in the game. The Dodgers lead Major League Baseball in runs scored, and also have one of the best batting averages in all of the league, at .279 on the season.

Slow Starting Minnesota Twins

Minnesota has yet to win a game at home this season. The Twins lost the first two against the Guardians, before  getting rained out. The Twins are one of the worst offensive teams in all of baseball, with just 23 runs on the season. Minnesota’s team batting average is at the bottom of the league at .191.

Alex Kiriloff has been the best hitter for Minnesota thus far. The left fielder is hitting .370 on the season. Manuel Margot has a home run and two runs batted in. Byron Buxton has yet to hit a home run on the season, but has four runs batted in. The Twins start a four game series on the road at the Tigers this weekend.

The Minnesota Twins will use Louie Varland. Varland is a 26 year old native of Minnesota. He has made one start this season, and took the loss. In that game against the Brewers, he lasted just four innings.

Dodgers Top Twins

This should be a pretty good baseball game. Glasnow has pitched really well for the Dodgers. We like Varland, but the Los Angeles offense is going to come to play. When push comes to shove, we are going to take the Los Angeles Dodgers. The final bet for this game is the Los Angeles Dodgers -170 over the Minnesota Twins. Enjoy the game and best of luck with all your Major League Baseball betting.
