The Twins are starting Jose Berrios (RHP) on the mound who is 3-3 on the season pitching a 4.29 ERA, 4.03 FIP, .312 wOBA, K% of 25.8, BB% of 11, 88.8 MPH average exit velocity & a 1.38 WHIP in 42 innings pitched.

On the hitting side the Twins have a .313 wOBA & a .318 OBP. The Cardinals have a .322 wOBA & a .340 OBP. The Twins have 56 HRs this season while the Cardinals have 30 HRs.

This is a pretty even matchup as Jose Berrios of the Twins is an average pitcher and Carlos Martinez of the Cardinals had one bad start but has much better talent. When it comes to hitting the Cardinals get on base more but the Twins have more firepower. That said if I had to choose a winner for this game I'd back the Cardinals behind the pitching of Carlos Martinez.
