Detroit 3 @ Minnesota 5 | 07/09 | 12:10 AM UTC
ANALYSIS: Minnesota will welcome back third baseman Josh Donaldson in the lineup; he hadn't played since Saturday. That's not the lone reason why I'll back the Twins, but they do crush left-handed pitching, leading the majors with 42 homers off them and ranking No. 2 in slugging. Tigers lefty Tarik Skubal (5-7, 4.35) is a promising young pitcher but has been considerably worse on the road and at night. Minnesota is 7-2 in its past nine as a favorite.
