Twins look to turn tide ahead of series opener vs. Tigers

The American League Central-leading Minnesota Twins, who have struggled at home recently, open a three-game series on Friday night against a team that on paper could be the perfect opponent to turn things around against.

Minnesota, which is 2-7 in its last nine games at Target Field in Minneapolis, hosts the Detroit Tigers, who are 38 games behind the Twins in the standings in last place in the AL Central.

Detroit also owns the worst road record in the majors (17-43). The Tigers, who lost at Houston, 6-3, on Thursday night while the Twins enjoyed a day off, are 2-5 on their current 10-game road trip.
