White Sox @ Twins (Nova vs Gibson)
White Sox are playing spoiler this time of year with a good chance to put a dent in the Twins dominance this year. Twins aren’t going to take any chances of an early wild card exit this postseason so they are going to play well tonight against the White Sox. The main difference between these two teams is the offense. Twins are still red hot at the plate and have a next man up mindset with Jake Cave. White Sox need a shake up but should be able to win a few games before the season is over this year.
CHW: Anderson, Abreu, McCann, Sanchez
MIN: Cave, Polanco, Cron, Castro
Rockies @ Diamondbacks (Gonzalez vs Gallen)
It’s a stretch to count any of these western teams to be in the Wild Card slot(s). Diamondbacks surprisingly have a decent chance to get there with a little bit of luck. Rockies have a tough hill to climb and there must hope that contending teams fall short in some crucial conference games. Diamondbacks should be able to win this one at home with the fans on their side. Diamondbacks have been surprising this season with a “rebuild” going on but still able to add depth like Adam Jones which looks to add power and consistency for this team.
COL: Blackmon, Tapia, Story
ARI: Dyson, Peralta, Marte, Escobar
