The Minnesota Twins will face the Tampa Bay Rays in a three game series starting Friday.

It's hard to complain about a series split at Yankee Stadium when you're the Minnesota Twins. Still, their series against the Yankees probably left a bit of a bad taste in the Twins mouths after a game four loss when they allowed four home runs. They'll continue their AL East road trip by heading to Tampa Bay to meet the Rays at Tropicana Field.

Game one of the series will feature Liam Hendricks on the mound for the Twins. The young Australian pitched very well in his first game of the year, letting in one earned run in seven innings before getting hit with a no decision. He'll face Matt Moore from the Rays, currently 0-1 with a 5.54 ERA after two mediocre showings to start the year.

The game will be at Tropicana Field at 7:10 p.m. ET.
