In this matchup I like the Minnesota Twins to blow up for bunches of runs. The Twins have looked good this year and will be able to hit the ball very well against Junis. The Royals have been struggling hitting this year and Smeltzer will be able to find his grove. Final score prediction, Minnesota Twins will win but like the over as top play 9-4.
