The Twins and Rangers conclude a three-game series in Arlington, and MLB expert Mike Spector weighs in with his best play for the American League tilt.

Texas Rangers vs Minnesota Twins Prediction: Can Marcus Semien and the Rangers Offense Get Hot Again?

What a difference a venue makes for the Texas Rangers. The Rangers entered this series against the Minnesota Twins having lost six of their last seven games on a nine-game road trip. However, it has been home sweet home for Texas, who has scored 15 combined runs in the first two wins of this three-game series. That offensive outburst is a big reprieve for the Rangers, who were held to three or fewer runs in four of their previous six losses.

Will a rejuvenated Rangers offense lead them to a sweep of the Twins? Will each team continue to mash the ball on a steamy afternoon in Arlington?

Read on for our prediction, best play, and odds for Sunday’s series finale between the Twins and Rangers.

Texas Rangers vs Minnesota Twins Prediction

Twins starter Dylan Bundy (4-4, 4.50) has been abysmal on the road this season, going 2-3 with a 5.89 ERA. He faces a Rangers lineup that is getting hot and has been sparked at the top of the lineup by Marcus Semien’s recent turnaround. Semien is coming off a two-hit and four-RBI performance in yesterday’s win. He has seen the ball well for quite some time now, with four of his 11 home runs on the season coming in the last ten games. Though the prized offseason acquisition is hitting just .238, he has eight hits in his previous 25 at-bats (.320) over the last seven days and is batting .294 overall in July.

Opposing Bundy is Texas’ Dane Dunning (1-6, 4.15), who is 1-2 with a 3.24 ERA in three career starts against the Twins. Dunning has not won a start since April 30 against Atlanta, a winless streak that spans 12 consecutive starts. He will have his hands full with Minnesota’s Luis Arraez, whose .355 batting average leads the league. The Twins do not have many lefties like Arraez in the lineup but would be wise to insert more, as lefties are hitting .293 against Dunning this season, which is the seventh-worst among all starting pitchers with a minimum of 41 innings pitched.

With both starting pitchers’ struggles and Dunning and Bundy facing hot offenses, there is nothing to suggest we are in line for a pitcher’s duel. The over has cashed in nine of the last 13 meetings in Texas between these teams and is 4-0-1 in Minnesota’s last five overall. Factor in a blazing hot afternoon where the ball will carry, and a total of 8.5 runs is much too low.
