The Minnesota Twins and the Detroit Tigers will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at Comerica Park.

Jose Berrios will be the starting pitcher for the Twins on this day. Right hander Berrios is 10-5 this season with a 3.86 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Jordan Zimmermann who starts for the Tigers. Right hander Zimmermann is 7-9 with a 5.27 ERA so far this season.

Berrios wasn’t particularly sharp in his last outing but still managed to earn the win despite allowing five runs and six hits in five innings against Texas. The 23-year-old Puerto Rico native is trying to find some consistency in the second half and held San Diego to one run over seven innings in his previous turn. Berrios made two starts against Detroit last season and was ripped for a total of 13 runs – 12 earned – and nine hits in 5 2/3 innings.

Zimmermann went seven innings in each of his last three starts but took the loss last time out while surrendering three runs and five hits at Pittsburgh. The Wisconsin native issued three walks against the Pirates after not yielding a free pass in either of his previous two turns. Zimmermann was not nearly as strong at Minnesota on July 22, when he was ripped for five runs on nine hits and four walks in 3 2/3 innings.

Oddsmakers currently have the Twins listed as 110-moneyline favorites versus the Tigers, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

The Minnesota Twins are determined to stay in the race in the American League Central and are on a roll with wins in six straight. The Twins will try to keep the pressure on the first-place Cleveland Indians and keep the Tigers thinking about the future when they visit Detroit for the second of a three-game series on Saturday.

Minnesota climbed two games over .500 (58-56) with Friday’s 9-4 win in the series opener and stayed within 3 1/2 games of the first-place Indians while remaining in the thick of the AL wild card race. The Twins are allowing an average of 3.2 runs during the winning streak and leaned heavily in the series opener on the bullpen, which responded by allowing one run and four hits in 4 1/3 innings in relief of ineffective starter Kyle Gibson. Minnesota will try to give the relief corps a little more rest on Saturday, when Jose Berrios takes the mound opposite Tigers veteran Jordan Zimmermann. Detroit (52-63) dropped 11 games under .500 with Friday’s setback and has lost six of its last seven while allowing an average of seven runs in those losses.

The Tigers were a 9-4 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Twins. That made winners of bettors who got Minnesota at -110 on the moneyline, while the total score (13) was good news for OVER bettors.

Minnesota won its last outing, a 9-4 result against the Tigers on August 11. Bettors who backed the Twins at -110 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (13) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
