Nothing like playing the Tigers to cure what ails you so Twins are hoping to add to their victory total as we head into the dog days of summer. Matt Manning on for the Tigers and it's his first start back after being on the 60-day DL for shoulder problems. I'm guessing he's on a pitch count so hopefully the Twins can get lots of bats against that bullpen. Chris Archer on for the Twins after having his start moved back a day, perhaps the extra rest will get him to pitch into the 6th inning.
I usually write these in the morning so no word on trades but by game time we will know if the Twins upgraded their roster at all for this 60-game stretch run. (Narrator: They did in fact upgrade their roster).
Looks hot and sunny for a 6:40p first pitch.
