Minnesota Twins (71-52) @ Texas Rangers (68-54)

Date: Monday August 23rd, 2010

Time: 8:05 pm EST

Preview: The Minnesota Twins and Texas Rangers will start a series between two first place teams. The Twins are four games up on the Chicago White Sox in the American League Central, coming into Sunday’s action. Minnesota took a 7-2 loss at the hands of the Angels on Saturday. Minnesota leads all of baseball in batting average (.282) and hits (1196). Joe Mauer, the Twins catcher leads the charge with a .331 batting average, while the injured Justin Morneau leads in homeruns, with 18. The Twins will send youngster Francisco Liriano to the mound. The 26 year old is 11-7 on the season, with a 3.45 earned run average. Liriano’s last start was against the White Sox, where he went five innings, allowing six hits and five runs in a no decision.

For Texas, Rich Harden will make the start. Harden is 4-4 with a 5.45 earned run average. The 28 year old from Canada has been in and out of the rotation, last making a start on August 7th, where he went just 2.1 innings against the Athletics. Harden’s last win came on July 31st, against the Angels. Texas is led offensively by Josh Hamilton, and his .356 batting average, along with 27 homeruns. The Rangers, as a team are batting .275, which ranks third in the league.

My MLB Betting Picks: Liriano pitches well, and Minnesota wins. Twins 5-3.
