San Diego Padres will come from the National League West ranked second with 56-45. The Minnesota Twins will be representing the American League Central with 52-47, ranking first in the subgroup. Placing seventh and 13th in the league respectively, both teams are of the same ballpark, more or less. Will playing home prove to be the edge the Padres need to win this feat? The first game in this three-part series has turned in favor of the Padres in a 10-1 victory The recent win has been added to their 26-21 home record with hopes of extending it ‘til game three. The probable pitcher for San Diego in game three is Sean Manaea who possesses a 4.33 Earned Run Average (ERA), 16 home runs (HR), and 39 base on balls (BB). Visiting team, Minnesota Twins, is looking to get over their losing streak from the series’ first game and their two losses in the hands of the Milwaukee Brewers. They currently reign over AL Central, but the Cleveland Guardians (51-48) are trailing too close behind for comfort. Dylan Bundy is expected to pitch for the upcoming game, and the said player has a 5.02 ERA, 13 HR, and 19 BB. Looking into this match, the Twins are offering greater value and odds in the matchup. The Padres have been beyond inconsistent and ineffective even when playing at home. Prior to this series, they had already lost two of three games to the Tigers. It’s understood how the Padres might be favored since they’re playing at home, but Joe Ryan of the Twins is proving more and more to be a threat as he excels. Only allowing two or fewer runs in four consecutive starts and sporting a 2.05 ERA for the month, Ryan is one of the top pitchers even though Manaea is expected to be the starting pitcher on Minnesota's staff. There’s great value with him and therefore the team. The Twins will be taking this one home. 4:10 AM (PST), Monday, 1 August 2022. Petco Park, San Diego, CA.
