After a big 10-5 victory yesterday which included a Joe Mauer grand slam, the Twins will try to do it again and take the 3-game home series.

Jake Odorizzi will start for the Twins. Like clockwork his super Odor power wore off by the 5th inning of his last start, giving up 5 runs to Houston in 4 23 innings.

He will face Yankees ace Luis Severino. The young righty has been solid all year, but is coming off his shortest start of the season giving up 6 runs in 2 23 innings against the Oakland A’s.
