RECENT TRENDS
NEWS

Covers Preview - Following a rough start out of the All-Star break, the Minnesota Twins picked right back up where they left off with their solid recent play away from home. The Twins, who continue their three-game road set on Wednesday against the Kansas City Royals, averaged only 2.6 runs while going 3-7 during a 10-game homestand to begin the second half. While Minnesota didn’t break out of its offensive funk in Tuesday’s 2-1 win, it did secure its sixth victory in its last seven games away from home.
