MLB Sports Handicappers Preview NY Yankees (26-18) at Minnesota (26-18)

Our sports picks in the NBA continued with another winner last night and while it took overtime to do it, we will take it. How about a match-up between two teams with identical records at 26-18 as the Yankees head to Minnesota to take on the Twins. The Twins have to hope that their new stadium will provide for better performances then the Metrodome did. The Yankees and Twins squared off ten times last year and the Yankees won all ten games. In fact the last game played in the Dome was a 4 – 1 Yankee victory as they headed off to win the World Series. Now games in Minnesota will be played at Target Stadium and things are off to a good start as the Twins have not loss a series at home in Target stadium yet this season. The Twins may have little momentum going as they finally broke their losing streak to the Yankees winning in New York 6-3 on May 16th. A.J Burnett is hard thrower who has not been able to keep the ball down and has paid for it going 0-2 in his L3 starts with an ERA of 8.15. He has had past success against the Twins winning five straight against them allowing 3,2,2,1 and 2 earned runs in those five starts. Baker faced the Yankees once in 09’ and was chased after just 3 innings allowing five runs on nine hits and faced the Yankees on May 14th allowing another 5 runs in 6 innings. This match-up gets intriguing as the Yankees have dominated but the Twins enter this game with a win over the Yankees and playing in their new stadium.  Morneau is heating up and is hitting .411 at the new stadium but is 5 for 17 against A.J Burnett. Mark Teixeira continues to struggle with just three hits over his last 25 plate appearances. He might be glad to be seeing the Twins as he is 6 – 10 against Baker and went 6 for 12 in the games played earlier in New York.
