The Detroit Tigers and Minnesota Twins continue their series at Comerica Park on Tuesday.
The Minnesota Twins have been playing decent baseball the past few weeks although their role has been spoiler with nothing to play for. I have been waiting for the Twins to catch fire at some point because I think they are better then their record although it doesn’t matter at this point. Minnesota dropped a 1-0 decision at Detroit Monday with starter Ricky Nolasco allowing a solo jack over six frames to fall to 4-8. The Twins were held to three hits and two walks with Miguel Sano reaching base twice. The Twins hand the ball to Tommy Milone for his first start of the season against Detroit. Milone defeated Texas 15-5 last time out with two runs plated on five hits and three BB over five innings.
