August 11, 2023


Game Preview


The Philadelphia Phillies and the Minnesota Twins will play a best-of-three series at Citizens Bank Stadium. The Twins have a 60-57 record heading into the game, good enough for a 3.5-game lead in the AL Central over the Cleveland Guardians. They just finished a series against the Detroit Tigers in which they dropped three of four games, which means they are now 4-6 over their last 10.


The Twins hold a slim 11-10 advantage in the overall series. Both squads enter today’s interleague matchup with the same goal in mind: clinching their respective league’s playoff berth.


The Minnesota Twins have been hit hard by injuries and have had trouble at the plate. They have been able to overcome their illnesses and recover from their wounds. The Twins have a batting average of 22nd in the league, an OBP of 18th, a runs total of 17th, and a slugging percentage of 13th, and they rank 8th in home runs.


For the Twins, the starting pitcher will be Dallas Keuchel, who has yet to register a win but has a 1.80 earned run average. He pitched five innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks recently, surrendering one earned run on eight hits and taking a no-decision.



The Phillies enter this series with a 64-52 record, good enough for the National League’s top wild card berth at the moment. Furthermore, they just swept the Washington Nationals. After 10 games, the Phillies have a 7-3 record.


Philadelphia regularly ranks among baseball’s top offenses. However, they have been slightly over average this season. The Phillies rank in the top 10 in slugging % and are in the top 8 in batting average, on-base percentage, runs scored, and home runs hit. In the end, their players’ hitting has been erratic.


For the Phillies, Christopher Sanchez will get the ball to start. He has a record of 0-3 and a 3.44 ERA. In his most recent start, a no-decision against the Kansas City Royals, he struggled mightily, surrendering six earned runs on six hits over five innings while striking out seven.
