Minnesota Twins vs Texas Rangers Match Preview

The Minnesota Twins continue to flex their muscles in impressive fashion. Minnesota aims to do more damage with another edition of its power display on Saturday, when it visits the Texas Rangers for the third contest of their four-game series.

Max Kepler hit his team-best 33rd homer and Jonathan Schoop also went deep in Friday's 4-3 win over the Rangers as the Twins raised their home-run total to 238 - just 29 shy of the record set last season by the New York Yankees. Minnesota has clubbed five homers while winning the first two games of the series and increased its lead over Cleveland in the American League Central to 1 1/2 games. The Rangers have dropped eight of their last 10 contests, scoring three runs or fewer six times during that stretch. Nomar Mazara went 3-for-4 on Friday as his two-run double was Texas' only hit in 11 at-bats with runners in scoring position.

The Minnesota Twins and the Texas Rangers will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at Globe Life Park in Arlington.

The Twins will trot Jose Berrios out to the mound in this one. Right hander Berrios has a 10-6 record and a 3.29 ERA this season.

The Rangers will counter Berrios with Ariel Jurado. Right hander Jurado has a 5.31 ERA to go along with a 6-8 record this season.

Texas Rangers vs Minnesota Twins

Pitching Matchup: Twins RH Jose Berrios (10-6, 3.29 ERA) vs. Rangers RH Ariel Jurado (6-8, 5.31)

Berrios did not factor in the decision in his last turn after giving up three runs and six hits over six innings against the Indians. The 25-year-old was torched for nine runs and nine hits over 5 2/3 frames in a loss to Atlanta in his previous outing. Berrios is 2-1 with a 5.63 ERA in three career starts against Texas but has shut down Rougned Odor (0-for-8, four strikeouts).

Jurado was roughed up badly in his last outing as he surrendered eight runs and 11 hits over 3 2/3 innings in a loss to Toronto. The 23-year-old was much sharper in his previous turn as he gave up two runs and three hits over seven frames in a setback against Cleveland. Jurado allowed two hits in 2 1/3 innings of relief on July 7 in his lone career appearance against Minnesota.
