I like the Twins at home here. After the grueling 17 innings both teams played last night, their depth will be tested. Both teams have plenty of power in their lineup and their offensive production has kept them in games. It was surprising to see Minnesota blanked in the opening game of the set but given Rodriguezs struggles in his outings against the Twins, you have to like the home teams chances. I believe that Minnesota wins the finale here with a complete team victory60%

Fansided: Minnesota Twins post game report: Gibson's start leads Red Sox over Twins
Coming off one of their most memorable victories of the year, the Minnesota Twins were looking for a strong start from Kyle Gibson. The veteran right-hander was coming off his best start of the season against the Kansas City Royals and looked to give the Twins another series victory at Target Field.
Instead, Gibson struggled throughout the night and couldn't make it out of the fifth inning. Although Minnesota would get more offense than the previous two nights, it wouldn't be enough as the Boston Red Sox would jump on Gibson early en route to a 9-4 victory.
Over the Monster: Red Sox 9, Twins 4: Heating up for the summer
Well, the Red Sox went on the road to take on the team with the best record in baseball heading into this series, and they took two of three. One good series against a good team isn't everything for a team that has underachieved as the Red Sox have, but you have to start somewhere. In Wednesday's game, they got a little bit of everything they needed, even when things looked ugly at times. Eduardo Rodriguez, for example, didn't look great for chunks of this game, losing his command and control at various points. Despite that, he gave the team seven solid innings on a night they desperately needed a little length.

Boston.com: Red Sox lose 4-3 to Twins after 17 innings
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Max Kepler was supposed to have the night off. Instead, the Twins outfielder wound up playing 12 innings and delivered three huge hits.
Kepler's single with one out in the 17th gave Minnesota a 4-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox early Wednesday in the longest game by innings in Target Field history.
Kepler hit a tying homer in the 13th before his hit down the first-base line past a five-man Red Sox infield scored Luis Arraez to end a game that took 5 hours, 45 minutes -- tied for the fourth-longest in Twins history.
Over the Monster: Red Sox 3, Twins 4: The win streak snapped in marathon fashion
The Red Sox had their win streak snapped in 17 innings and almost six hours of baseball. I'm tired. Read below.
In a series with the best offense in baseball this season (statistically speaking at least) and the best offense in baseball last season facing off, there was some expectation for runs to be aplenty this week in Minnesota. Granted, both teams have good pitching as well with the Red Sox in particular getting plenty of strong performances from their rotation of late. Still, with all of the talent up and down each of these lineups it was hard not to focus on the offense.

Max Kepler, who had already rescued the Twins twice, with a game-tying single in the eighth inning and a long, game-tying home run into the second deck in the thirteenth, did it again in the seventeenth, ripping a bases-loaded single just inside the right field line, scoring Luis Arraez.
The deciding run came off Brian Johnson, Boston's ninth pitcher of the night, who had given up one-out single to Arraez and a double to the right-field wall to Eddie Rosario. After a mound visit, Mookie Betts came in just behind second base, making a five-man infield. C.J. Cron was intentionally walked.
Fansided: Minnesota Twins beat Red Sox in 17 innings
The Minnesota Twins played host to the Boston Red Sox once again Tuesday night in the 2nd game of the 3 game series.
Michael Pineda would start on the bump for the Twins facing the always dangerous Red Sox lefty David Price. Another close game this one lasted just a bit longer than usual going a whopping 17 innings. Max Kepler came up clutch all night and did once more with the game on the line in the bottom of the 17th inning. A game-winning single would seal it as the Twins and Red Sox were both struggling to score runs.
