Score: 4 - 2
Total: -110/+8½ Over
Twins LH Adalberto Mejia (1-1, 4.64 ERA) vs. Angels RH Alex Meyer (2-2, 5.79)
Mejia the Twins starter has yet to go more than 5 innings this season, and is backed by a bullpen, that owns a 5.17 overall ERA. Before being sent to the minors earlier this season Mejia accumulated a bloated 5.79 ERA. Meanwhile, his pitching opponent from the Halos, Im betting will exhibit some rust today after being on the disabled list for 11 days with back spasms. Meyer is 2-2 with a 5.79 ERA in five starts for the Angels, and has bounced back and forth from the minors like his pitching opponent Meja.He is a former Twin, so they know what he has to offer as a pitcher.Meyer made four appearances (one start) for the Twins between 2015-16. He allowed 10 runs over 6 1/3 innings with his former club.
Both these starting throwers look ripe to give up a boatload full of runs tonight.
The Twins are slumping and have lost 4 straight, and have surrendered 48 runs in that span, and the momentum of that barage has a high probabilty of continuing in California tonight. In three of those losses the Twins still managed to score 8, 6,6 runs and must not be underestimated to do some offensive damage again.
