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.
