The Boston Red Sox (21-23) go back on the road and start their three-game series against the Minnesota Twins (25-18), tonight. While the Red Sox are 5-5 in their last 10 games, they won their series against the Los Angeles Angels by winning their last two games, handily. The Twins are also winners of their last two games, going 7-3 in their last 10.
The Twins are only three games back of the American League Central division leaders, the Kansas City Royals, and will look to improve their strong home record (14-6) at the expense of Boston’s brethren. The Red Sox are an even .500 on the road, so you never quite know what you’ll get from them. It should be an interesting matchup, considering two out of three games will be during the early afternoon, instead of night games.
Let’s look at the tale of the tape:
