Storylines
1. Gardy and the Tigers are riding higher than they have in a long time. Despite being 13-27, the Tigers take 2 out 3 against Cleveland and on Mother's Day come back from a 8-0 deficit and win 10-8 and have now won three of their last four.
2. Boyd's last start against Minnesota was forgetful to say the least, going 4.2IP, 4H, 7ER, and 5 BB. Boyd will have to bounce-back against the Twins ace in Jose Berrios who's been excellent his last three starts (3-0, 18.1IP, 13H, 19K's, 1.49ERA).
3. Last time these two teams played the Twins took games one and two 4-0, and 7-6 and Detroit took game three in a thriller 9-8 behind the bats of former Twins Jonathan Schoop and C.J. Cron. If last time around is any indication, this should be a great series.
