The Minnesota Twins and New York Yankees begin a four game series tonight from the Bronx. Both teams have started the season off well and will be looking to make an early statement against a potential playoff opponent down the line. The Twins come in with a record of 4-2 on the road this season while the Yankees are 4-2 at home as well. So far at least, these two teams seem pretty even so that could make for a really fun and entertaining matchup as the weekend unfolds.
Date: Thursday, April 13th, 2023
Time: 7:05 p.m. EST
Location: Yankee Stadium in Bronx, New York
Team Records: Minnesota Twins (8-4), New York Yankees (8-4)
Projected Starting Pitchers:
Joe Ryan (2-0, 3.75 ERA) vs Jhony Brito (2-0, 0.90 ERA)
What to Watch:
The Yankees will be throwing out young pitcher Jhony Brito who has been awesome to start the season and his career. In his last outing, he threw five innings and only gave up one run to the Baltimore Orioles. Before that, he threw five shutout innings with six strikeouts in his MLB debut against the San Francisco Giants. If Brito continues pitching this way, the Yankees will be in great shape with their starting rotation.
Game Prediction: New York Yankees 5, Minnesota Twins 2
I like the Yankees to grab this game behind another strong showing from Brito. He helps them get their ninth win of the year tonight.
