Twins Vs. Reds: Minnesota Tries To String Two Wins Together At Cincinnati

The Minnesota Twins will look to win two games in a row on Saturday afternoon when they resume their interleague series with the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ballpark.

The Twins have alternated between wins and losses over their last five games after ending a four-game losing streak last Sunday against Milwaukee. Now the Twins will try to build on their 5-4 win Friday night when they rallied from behind in the sixth inning and then enjoyed a solid effort by the bullpen to shut down the Reds in the final four innings.

On Saturday, the Twins will dip into the bullpen to find a starting pitcher as left-hander Brian Duensing will make his first start of the season after making 30 appearances so far. Duensing started 28 games last season for the Twins, finishing with a 9-14 record.

The Reds will counter with right-hander Johnny Cueto who is off to a strong start for the Reds with an 8-3 record and 2.38 ERA in 14 starts so far this season.

The game is scheduled to start at 4:10 p.m. on Saturday and will be televised on Fox Sports North.
