A. J. Burnett will try to keep his hot streak going as the New York Yankees visit the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday.  Burnett is 7-4 on the season with a 3.74 ERA and he has been excellent of late.   Last Friday he gave up just two runs in seven innings against Toronto while striking out seven.  He has allowed just three earned runs in his last four starts overall.

 

SBG Global reports that early MLB Betting has the public taking Yankees on the Road.

 

The Twins counter with Glen Perkins on Wednesday.  He is 4-4 with a 4.38 ERA this season.  He pitched well in his last start against Kansas City, allowing just one run in seven innings.  He has had very little success in his career against the Yankees going 1-3 with a 7.71 ERA in four starts.

 

The Twins have played very well at home this season and the Yankees know it will not be easy. “Minnesota's very tough in that building, and they've been playing well, too.” Manager Joe Giradi said, “We know these are two tough series, but we'll worry about Minnesota first and then move on."

 

New York is trying to cap off a successful first half of the season. "We just want to continue to play well," said Derek Jeter, "We're doing a lot of good things around here, and that's what you want to continue until the All-Star break. We've got six more games at Minnesota and Anaheim, and they both play us tough. We want to just continue this."
