The Minnesota Twins are up against the San Francisco Giants in a battle between the American League and National League. The way both teams are placed in their respective divisions makes for an exciting competition.
They are second in the American League Central with a 64-61 record. The Cleveland Guardians currently sit atop the division but are only three games up on the Twins. The Chicago White Sox are a close third, only two games behind them. The AL Central is still a tight race. Any slip-up can cause teams to replace each other quickly.
The San Francisco Giants are currently third in the NL West but are a long way behind the leaders, the Los Angeles Dodgers. They will be looking for a win to gain ground on the second-placed San Diego Padres, whose record is 70-58 at present.
The away form is a major concern for the Giants, who have a 27-35 record when not at home, and this is what is making them suffer right now. They share a similar story with the Twins, as their current losing streak stands at 3-7.
