Minnesota Twins: What to watch for against the Detroit Tigers
By Chris Schad
Will the Twins continue their dominance in the AL Central?
Even after dropping two of three games to the Indians this week, Minnesota still has a commanding lead in the American League Central. The Twins are 12-5 against their division this season and with the other four teams in flux, now is the perfect time to put a team toward the bottom of the standings to bed in early June.
With former Twins manager Ron Gardenhire leading the way, there’s sure to be some talk about how scrappy the Tigers are. However, the Twins are simply a better team and should be able to take care of business this weekend in Detroit.
If the Twins can do their job, they’ll cap off the road trip with a winning record and be in great position to open a nine-game homestand against the Seattle Mariners on June 11. In addition, a strong finish to the road trip will help solidify their status in the AL Central and continue marching toward an exciting summer (and maybe fall) in Minneapolis.
