Catch-up
After the Twins have had three walk-off wins of their own, they were finally "walked-off," for the first time in 2020 as Cameron Maybin hit an RBI single and the Tigers took game one 4-3. Berrios and Boyd had great starts, but the Tigers bullpen bests Minnesota's and the Twins will look to bounceback tonight.

- 2020: 63
- 2019 through 41 games: 72

 

Storylines
1. Daniel Norris has been Detroit's hottest starter early in 2020 leading the club in ERA and Wins. An important step for Norris who in his 6th season last year, recorded his first full season as a starter (3-13, 1441.1IP, 4.49ERA) and is looking to build off of his 2019 campaign.
2. Odorizzi, like Kenta Maeda, has for the most part struggled to go deep in ballgames. Outside of his 7 inning shutout win against Cleveland, he has averaged 4.0IP per start and with no off-days in the near future, the Twins will lean on Odo to eat some innings up tonight.
3. The Tigers have now won 4 of their last 5 and the AL Central lead for the Twins is down to 2.0 games. A win tonight would Detroit under 10 games out of the hunt and could make for a disasterous start to the road-trip for Minnesota who will head to Cleveland this weekend.
