Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Minnesota Twins vs Kansas City Royals
The Minnesota Twins visit hot and humid Kansas City to take on the Royals Friday night at Kaufman Stadium. The Royals are one of the league’s worst teams and are a far cry from the World Series champs that won it all a couple of years ago. The Twins, on the other hand, are sitting in second place in the AL Central at 7.5 games back with a losing record.
The Royals have played well against the Twins this season taking the first series after dropping only one game, but lost the second series winning only game.
Minnesota Twins's Latest Performance :
The Minnesota Twins are in second place in the league’s worst division and possess a losing record. They are coming off the break with a one-game win streak and their sights on the Cleveland Indians. The Twins are 8-2 in their last ten while the Indians have stumbled going 4-6 in their last ten.
Jose Berrios pitched a scoreless inning in the All-Star game and hopes to stay among the better pitchers in the league and help his team get back to .500.
Kansas City Royals's Latest Performance :
The Kansas City Royals are obviously in a rebuilding year or possibly “years” at this rate. They have only won a league-low twenty-seven games this season and sit in last place in all of MLB. Things couldn’t get any worse for this team. They can only hope that they can make some moves in free agency and their draft picks pan out. Only time will tell.

In-Depth Analysis of each team:
The Twins should have their way with the Royals at this point in the season. They are in the playoff hunt and could give the Indians a run for their money if they can turn things around and play consistent ball in the second half of the season. Don’t expect the Royals to give them too much trouble in this series. The Twins have a better bullpen and can rack up some runs against even a division rival.
