Stephen Nover's Sunday Dominator - 12-4 MLB Streak
Cleveland vs. Minnesota,
08/11/2019 14:10 EDT,
Score: 7 - 3
Money Line: -143 Minnesota
The Twins are 25-10 the past 35 times Jose Berriors pitches at home. One of those losses, though, occurred the last time Berrios pitched at Target Field. That came this past Tuesday against Atlanta. The Braves blasted Berriors scoring nine runs on him in fewer than six innings. It was one of Berrios' worst days of his career.
Prior to that, however, Berrios had gone 12 straight starts without surrendering more than three earned runs. He is an elite pitcher and extremely reliable. His home ERA is 3.15. His day time ERA is 3.20
I trust Berrios to come back strong following that rare humiliation.
He's facing rookie Aaron Civale, who will be making back-to-back big league starts for the first time. This will be the toughest test Civale has faced. Minnesota ranks first in the majors in homers and is second in runs.
The Indians, by contrast, rate 20th in homers and 19th in runs.
