We win last night's battle in South side of Chicago. Today we take our game to the Coliseum in Oakland. Beautiful day partly cloudy, but looking clear now at 64F and today is Wednesday special at Oakland. $2 tickets are available in Plaza Level, Plaza Outfield and Plaza Reserved sections, while supplies last. Purchase tickets now for this popular promotion. $2 Wednesdays are presented by BART.
How about that for a treat? Go catch this game if your in the area and we will cap this game. Minnesota Twins are hurting this year they stop the 9 game losing streak at Seattle, but this team has long ways to prove themselves. Carl Pavano taking the ball coming off 0-2 ND, Twins loss and Twins are win less on Pavano's road starts. Oakland playing much better will send Brandon McCarthy who is searching for his second win. The last win was back in April 10 at Minnesota. I see this game with high potential to go Over 7. Both pitchers are in a spot to regress and despite Minnesota's O/U 9-16 record the Over number has been creeping in for the last 10 games. Oakland, evident by yesterday's 14 run eruption, has been scoring in recent games. Both teams are trending Over and that's the play.
MIN/OAK OVER 7 -115(Push)
