The Minnesota Twins will be fighting to snap a losing streak on Friday when they take on the Oakland Athletics at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

The Twins will pin their hopes on the pitching of left hander Jaime Garcia in this game. Garcia has a 4-7 record and a 4.30 ERA this season.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Daniel Gossett who starts for the Athletics. Right hander Gossett is 2-5 with a 5.40 ERA so far this season.

Garcia exited Atlanta on a high note, winning his second straight start last time out by limiting the league-best Dodgers to three runs over seven innings. The 31-year-old Mexico native also went seven innings in his previous turn, permitting one run on four hits to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks. That halted a seven-start winless drought in which he went 0-4 and was tagged for at least five runs in four straight outings.

Gossett won for the first time in a month in his last turn, matching his career high with six strikeouts while holding the New York Mets to two runs and five hits over six innings. The 24-year-old rookie pitched a career-high seven innings in his previous outing against Tampa Bay, taking the loss despite giving up three runs on seven hits. Gossett will be making his ninth career start as he seeks his first win at home.

Oddsmakers currently have the Twins listed as 110-moneyline favorites versus the Athletics, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

Jaime Garcia is poised to make his American League debut with the Minnesota Twins and the veteran left-hander will be under more pressure than simply wanting to make a positive impression on his new teammates. Acquired in a trade with Atlanta earlier in the week, Garcia will pitch the opener of a three-game series at the Oakland Athletics on Friday night.

“It means a lot that they believe in me,” Garcia said of the Twins trading for him. “It gets me fired up. Just the fact they traded one of their prospects to get me, it just motivates me even more.” Garcia, who has won at least 10 games four times in his career, will be tasked with trying to halt a four-game losing streak that dropped Minnesota two games under .500. While the Twins are six games back of first-place Cleveland in the AL Central, Oakland is buried in last place in the AL West and most of its drama revolves around whether right-hander Sonny Gray will be traded to a contender, with the New York Yankees rumored to be a potential destination. The Athletics are coming off a four-game sweep in Toronto, losing the final two games on walk-off home runs.

In their last action, Oakland was a 8-4 loser on the road against the Blue Jays. Bettors on Toronto at -182 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (12) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.

Minnesota was a 6-5 loser in its last match on the road against the Dodgers. They lost as +214 underdogs, while the total score of 11 made winners of OVER bettors.
