Baltimore at Minnesota

3 units on Minnesota -107 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The Birds are 4-9 over their last 13 for one big reason. They have difficulty much of the time producing runs and the last 13 show them averaging just 3.6 a game. This output makes it very difficult to land in the win column, especially on the road. Sidney Ponson has found what he had lost over the past several seasons. The Twins have won five of his last seven starts while his ERA remains in the 3s - which is excellent these days in the AL. When the Twins gave up Santana, many felt they would slip to the basement, but here they are in June, only 1.5 games out of first and a real threat in the AL Central. Baltimore still hasn't learned to win on the road at 11-18 and we like the Twins at home here.
