Minnesota Twins vs Los Angeles Dodgers (-210, 8.5)
Since the start of June, Dodgers starter Julio Urias has a 2.30 ERA. He’s given up two runs or fewer in nine of his starts during that stretch and three or fewer in 10. Opponents have only hit .189 against him while earning 1.7 walks per nine innings throughout this span.
The Dodgers have allowed four runs or fewer in 18 of their last 21 games behind a bullpen that has a 2.71 ERA the past six weeks, which is the best mark in the National League in that span.
Joe Ryan gets the start for the Twins, who’s allowed two earned runs or fewer in five of his last six. He’s also allowed more than two earned runs in just two of his eight road starts this season.
The Twins made a pair of moves at the trade deadline to bolster their bullpen, bringing in Jorge Lopez from the Baltimore Orioles and Michael Fulmer from the Detroit Tigers to help a bullpen that ranks 14th in ERA this season.
The additions to the Twins bullpen have led to them allowing three runs or fewer in five of their last eight games, helping set up a Tuesday pitcher’s duel in Los Angeles.
