Twins Vs. Tigers: Minnesota Tries To Avoid Sweep By Detroit

The Minnesota Twins wrap up their weekend series with the Detroit Tigers looking to avoid a sweep and snap a four-game losing streak after dropping the first two games of the series.

The Twins turn to right-hander P.J. Walters to improve their fortunes. Walters have been solid since joining the starting rotation, most notably in his last outing in which he posted a complete game win over the Chicago White Sox. Walters is 2-1 with a 2.91 ERA on the season. He will need to cool down the Detroit bats, as the Tigers have belted 28 hits in the first two games of the series.

Detroit will give the ball to Rick Porcello to try to complete the sweep. The young, right-hander has struggled recently and enters the game with a 3-4 record and 5.29 ERA.

The game at Target Field will start at 1:10 p.m. CT and will be televised on Fox Sports North.
