Can the Twins get back to winning at Target Field?
As mentioned prior to their series with the Washington Nationals last week, the Twins have had a hard time winning at Target Field recently. With the Nationals taking two out of three games in that series, the Twins now own a series record of 2-7-1 and an overall record of 13-18 in Minneapolis since the All-Star break.
Although it is unlikely that the Twins will have home-field advantage at any point during the postseason, they still need to re-establish their winning ways at Target Field if they want to make a run.
On the season, the Twins have actually played well at home, compiling a record of 41-33. That record should go up against a team like the White Sox, who may look to play spoiler, but are also a team that’s looking forward to October golf plans while the Twins have their eyes set on a World Series championship.
If the Twins can take advantage of some solid pitching matchups and get another great performance from their bullpen, they should be able to take two out of three games and get another step closer to winning their first AL Central title since 2010.
