The fans at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum will be treated to a game between the Minnesota Twins and the Oakland Athletics when they take their seats on Saturday.

The Twins will trot Adalberto Mejia out to the mound in this one. Left hander Mejia has a 4-4 record and a 4.10 ERA this season.

Mejia’s opponent in this one will be Chris Smith. The Athletics right hander has a 3.32 ERA to go along with a 0-1 record this season.

Mejia is winless in his last three turns but has allowed just one earned run in each of the last two – both no-decisions in which he failed to make it through six innings. The 24-year-old Dominican has not been victorious since giving up three runs over seven frames against the Los Angeles Angels on July 3. Mejia will be making his first road start in a month as he last pitched away from home on June 28, when he scattered five hits over 5 2/3 scoreless innings of a victory at Boston.

Smith remains in search of his first career win as a starter as he gets the call for the fourth time this season – and overall in the major leagues. The 36-year-old Californian took the loss at Toronto on Monday after yielding three runs on six hits and three walks in six innings. Smith has made two career relief appearances against Minnesota, allowing two hits with two walks and a pair of strikeouts in three scoreless frames.

Oddsmakers currently have the Twins listed as 108-moneyline favorites versus the Athletics, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

After ending a four-game slide in the series opener, the Minnesota Twins try to begin a winning streak when they continue their three-game set against the host Oakland Athletics on Saturday. Minnesota kicked off its eight-game road trip with three straight losses to the Los Angeles Dodgers before posting a 6-3 triumph over Oakland on Friday.

Jason Castro recorded a pair of RBI doubles in the opener for the Twins, who are in third place and six games back in the American League Central thanks to current surges by first-place Cleveland and Kansas City. Minnesota also trails the Royals by four games for the second AL wild-card spot. Returning home from a 1-6 road trip did not change Oakland’s fortunes as it suffered its fifth consecutive setback. Khris Davis went 2-for-3 with a run-scoring single as he reached the 70-RBI plateau for the second time in his career after registering 102 last year.

Last time out for Oakland, they were a 6-3 loser as they battled the Twins on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Twins at -108 were rewarded, while the 9 combined runs moved the game PUSH for totals bettors.

In their last action, Minnesota was a 6-3 winner on the road against the Athletics. Bettors on Minnesota at -108 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (9) sent PUSH bettors home happy as well.
