The Athletics won on Tuesday and in the process gained some ground in the wild-card standings. They scored five runs on 10 hits in all and received a quality outing from Brett Anderson in his return from Tommy John surgery. Tonight the A’s will pitch Tom Milone who has lost his last three decisions. Milone has allowed 150 hits in 145 innings of work posting a 4.03 ERA for the season.
The Twins are looking to get out of last place in their division, but the loss on Tuesday hurt that effort. They scored just one run and only amassed 4 hits for the game. On Wednesday the Twins will start Liam Hendricks who is winless in eight starts this season. Hendricks is pitching to an eye-popping 7.04 ERA in 38 innings of work.
Oakland is 5-1 in their last six games overall, 6-1 in their last seven home games, and 8-3 in Milone’s last 11 home starts. Minnesota is 205 in their last seven games against a team with a winning road record, 1-6 in their last seven games overall, and 1-5 in Hendrik’s last six starts.
Although Milone has hit a rough patch, Hendricks has been awful this season. Give us the A’s as a moneyline favorite at home at online sports books.
