Yankees vs. Twins prediction: Minnesota will beat Gerrit Cole

1

What, no Go-Gos? “We Love NYC: The Homecoming Concert” Saturday evening from Central Park. Do the right thing, New York. Show your love for Mayor de Blasio and give him the Gary Bettman treatment.

Start spreadin’ the news. The Yankees, the hottest team in baseball, were looking for their eighth straight win Friday night against the Twins. Gerrit Cole (11-6, 3.04 ERA) takes his turn Saturday.

The dominant or inconsistent Cole allowed one run over 5 ²/₃ innings Monday to the Angels after two subpar performances. Minnesota’s Kenta Maeda (6-4, 4.41) was awful earlier this year, but has lost just twice in his last 15 starts and shut out the mighty Rays for six innings, scattering three hits, in his latest. Taking the Twinkies at +170 for 10 units.


Royals clubbed the Cubs 6-2. Zach Davies watched four balls clear the Ivy. So did 31,835 Ferris Buellers who obviously had nothing better to do on their day off. Down -715 garfunkels.
