According to STATS
According to STATS

Minnesota Twins at Houston Astros

  1. On Saturday, the Twins hit 11 home runs in their doubleheader, the fourth most by a team on a single day in MLB history. The last team to have as many home runs in a single day was the Twins themselves, when they had 12 on August 29, 1963.
  2. The Astros are 6-0 at home this season, slashing .335/.410/.576 as a team. All three statistics are the highest in MLB.
  3. The Astros swept the Twins at home last season, outscoring them 18-4. They have won seven of their last eight home games against Minnesota, hitting a home run in seven of those games while also allowing a home run in seven games.
  4. Mitch Garver is hitting .424 with five home runs in 10 games this season, becoming the first Twins player to bat at least .400 (minimum 30 plate appearances) and hit at least five home runs in their first 10 games of the season since Kirby Puckett in their 1987 World Series season (five home runs, .427 AVG).
  5. George Springer has hit a home run in two consecutive games and has scored a run in each of his last five games. He finished the eight-game road trip with a 1.163 OPS and nine runs scored.
  6. In the eight games in which he has gotten a hit this season, Willians Astudillo has scored in each game. The Twins are 7-1 when he gets a hit this season compared to 1-4 when he plays and does not get a hit.
Notes Applicable For Series Dates: 4/22/2019 thru 4/24/2019

Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch is forever adamant about stressing the significance of quality at-bats and remains an ardent supporter of his team's ability to compile them no matter the circumstance and against any opposing pitcher.

While dropping the rubber match of their three-game series against the Texas Rangers Sunday in Arlington, the Astros showcased that collective skill, rallying from a nine-run deficit and placing the go-ahead runner on second base in the ninth inning of their 11-10 loss. Houston, which will open a seven-game homestand Monday by hosting the Minnesota Twins in the first game of a three-game set at Minute Maid Park, slugged five solo home runs while mounting the comeback, making something out of nothing to build momentum, even in defeat.

"We try to put together those same quality at-bats every game, first inning, ninth inning, whatever," said third baseman Alex Bregman, who homered in the Astros' five-run sixth inning. "We did a really good job of that."

Said right fielder Josh Reddick, who slugged a homer in the eighth: "We've got to build on that, especially after doing so well on the road trip and hitting the wall the last couple of games. It's definitely a positive to see us come back like that, but fell a little short."

Right-hander Brad Peacock (2-0, 3.94 ERA) returns to the rotation for the Astros following a pair of relief appearances brought upon by scheduled days off. Peacock allowed five runs on seven hits and one walk over five innings in his previous start on April 7 against Oakland. He did not factor into the decision in the Astros' 9-8 victory. Peacock did win in relief five days later in Seattle when he worked 3 1/3 innings and allowed two runs (one earned) on one hit and one walk with seven strikeouts in a 10-6 victory. He is 0-2 with a 4.05 ERA over seven career appearances (three starts) against the Twins, including an 0-1 record and 2.70 ERA over four relief appearances last season.

Right-hander Jake Odorizzi (1-2, 4.76 ERA) will start the series opener for the Twins. Odorizzi snapped a three-start winless streak on April 17 against the Blue Jays, limiting Toronto to one run on six hits and one walk with six strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings in a 4-1 victory at Target Field. He is 3-1 with a 2.12 ERA over five career starts against the Astros but allowed six runs on nine hits over 10 2/3 innings in two starts against Houston in 2018, posting a 1-1 mark and 5.06 ERA.

The Twins capped a three-game sweep in Baltimore with a 4-3 win over the Orioles Sunday, their fourth victory in five games. Minnesota did not homer in the series finale after bashing 11 dingers while sweeping a doubleheader at Camden Yards Saturday. The Twins lengthened their lineup during the offseason with the addition of veteran sluggers Nelson Cruz and C.J. Cron and will arrive in Houston boasting seven players with at least three home runs. Left fielder Eddie Rosario (nine home runs) and catcher Mitch Garver (five) have combined for 14 homers.

"We have guys that have a long track record of hitting," Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said to MLB.com. "We have some younger players who are really coming into their own offensively. We might never see another night like that ever again, but as far as the consistent good ABs, I would expect to see that continuing."
