We have an American League MLB contest to consider for Friday evening when the Oakland Athletics and Minnesota Twins meet for game two of their four-game scheduled series. This preview was published prior to the conclusion of Thursday MLB contests and all opinions shared is based on the stats from Wednesday night MLB action.
Oakland is second in the American League West and scheduled righty Chris Bassitt to start against Minnesota. The Twins is first in the AL Central and will counter with right-handed pitcher Jake Odorizzi against the Athletics. I’m the Flash and will be discussing this game with you today.

Twins Three Game Losing Streak

At one point this season, the Twins had a 12-game lead and were running away with the American League Central division and now is just four games ahead of the Cleveland Indians in the standings. The Twins are playing .500 ball over their last 10 games and enters Thursday night hoping to end a three-game losing streak.
