The Twins step into tonight’s matchup sporting a 32-16 record that ranks them 1st in the AL Central. At the present time Minnesota owns a 6 ½ game lead over the second seeded Cleveland Indians. With this in mind, it’s clear that Minnesota has a firm lead on their No. 1 spot. Nevertheless, the club will undoubtedly be looking to build on that lead tonight. Martin Perez is the man tasked with leading the charge against the Angels on the road. Perez steps onto the mound tonight with a 6-1 record as well as a 2.89 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP.

Los Angeles Angels
The Angels fly into this evening’s matchup with a 22-26 record that ranks them 4th overall in the AL West. Presently the Houston Astros lead the division and own a 10 ½ game lead over Los Angeles. Clearly LA doesn’t have much of a shot at usurping Houston. However, since they’re only 1 ½ games behind the 3rd seeded Oakland Athletics, they can certainly climb the divisional ladder with a win streak. However, seeing as how they’re starting Matt Harvey this evening, MLB baseball betting fans shouldn’t bank on a Los Angeles win here. After all, Harvey is 2-3 this season and enters with a 6.35 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. Considering that Minnesota ranks No. 1 in the MLB with 273 runs this season, it’s clear how this contest will end up.
Players to Watch: Andrelton Simmons (3 HR, 21 RBI, .298 BA), Kole Calhoun (9 HR, 26 RBI, .224 BA), and David Fletcher (3 HR, 17 RBI, .303 BA).
