A two-game interleague series kicks off when the Minnesota Twins arrive at Los Angeles where they’ll play against the Dodgers. The Twins have a tough opponent in front of them as the Dodgers are one of the hottest teams in the MLB right now, winning 8 straight games entering the series, and hold a 16-game edge over the San Diego Padres in the National League West division.
On the other hand, the Twins enter this series with the Cleveland Guardians and the Chicago White Sox trailing them closely. Minnesota holds a 1 game advantage over Cleveland and a 2 game edge over Chicago. Minnesota has 133 home runs this season, the eighth most in baseball led by Byron Buxton who has 26. The Twins’ offense is a solid one, ranking ninth in the MLB in both teams batting average with .251 and .738 OPS.
One of the reasons that make the Dodgers such a great team is their performance when playing at home, holding a shiny 38-15 record. They arrive into this series winning 9 out of their last 10 and there is no sign of slowing down. Los Angeles has one of the best offenses in the major leagues, ranking third in team batting average with .260 and first in OPS with .781.
