New York Mets vs Minnesota Twins Match Preview and Free Picks
The New York Mets have a chance to match their longest winning streak of the season when they cap a two-game interleague series at the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday afternoon. Edwin Diaz got slugger Nelson Cruz to pop up with the bases loaded in the ninth to finish off the Mets' 3-2 win in the series opener, giving New York three consecutive victories for the first time since a four-gamer in May.
Michael Conforto had four of the Mets' seven hits and drove in a run in Tuesday's triumph as his club improved to 6-4 against the American League. The Twins have dropped two in a row to see their lead in the AL Central cut to five games over the Cleveland Indians. Cruz's foul pop to end it capped an 0-for-4 night and left him 2-for-22 with eight strikeouts over a six-game span. Minnesota turns to Martin Perez on Wednesday while New York gives the ball to Jason Vargas in a matchup of veteran left-handers.

It'll be J.A. Happ toeing the rubber for the Yankees in this contest. Left hander Happ is 6-3 with a 4.66 ERA so far this season.
