Twins Look For Game And Series Win Against Tigers

The Twins enter tonight’s game against the Detroit Tigers with an opportunity to win a series, something they haven’t done since July 28th, when they took two of three from the Texas Rangers. Granted, they lost the opener of that game 20-6, but the played good baseball the rest of that series, and looked like the better team the last two games.

That han’t happened in the month of August so far, as they lost two of three to the Angels, were swept by the White Sox at home, then lost two more to the Red Sox before slavaging one win on the home stand, then lost the first two of three in Cleveland before the final game was rained out on Sunday.

On the Twins injury front, it looks like Denard Span will play, and Michael Cuddyer is close. He’ll take batting practice and then the team will make a decision.

The Twins have a decent shot to take this series, as Carl Pavano takes on Brad Penny. Pavano has pitched very well in his last two outings, only giving up two unearned runs in over 15 innings pitched. His counterpart Penny has been going in the opposite direction, giving up 15 earned runs and 27 hits over his last 15 innings.

First pitch is 6:05.
