Why you should back the Twins
Minnesota displayed some early power in Sunday's victory as Gio Urshela hit a three-run homer in the third inning to open the scoring before Nick Gordon and Trevor Larnach began the fourth with back-to-back blasts. Urshela has hit safely in eight of his last nine games and has done well at the plate against the Tigers thus far this season, going 10-for-21 with three RBIs. Larnach has gone deep in two straight games and also has excelled versus Detroit as he is 6-for-14 with a homer and three RBIs in five contests, while Luis Arraez is riding a nine-game hitting streak during which he has posted seven multi-hit performances.
Another member of the Twins who has impressed against the Tigers this year is Mondays starter Dylan Bundy, who deserved a better outcome for his efforts. The 29-year-old right-handed made the start versus Detroit last Wednesday and settled for a no-decision despite giving up just one run and five hits over 5 ⅔ innings. After being tagged for nine runs and 11 hits in 3 ⅔ innings at Baltimore on May 4, Bundy has yielded one run and seven hits in 8 ⅔ frames over his last two outings.
Why you should back the Tigers
Detroit, who will start righty Beau Brieske, managed to record only four hits in Sunday's 2-1 home triumph against Cleveland, but two were solo home runs by Harold Castro and Jeimer Candelario. The duo also put on a power display in the Tigers' 4-2 victory at Minnesota last Wednesday, with Castro hitting a pair of solo shots and Candelario belting a decisive two-run homer in the 10th inning. The 28-year-old Castro is swinging a hot bat as he has gone 7-for-11 over his last three contests.
The Tigers have been playing well of late, winning three of their last four games after a stretch during which they lost five of six. They also have performed better at home, winning five of their last six contests at Comerica Park. Slugger Miguel Cabrera missed Sunday's game with lower back tightness but hopes to get back in the lineup as he has recorded three multi-hit efforts over his last five outings.
