Twins-Blue Jays Preview

(AP) -- Although a lack of scoring has led to their recent slump, the Minnesota Twins have unsurprisingly found a way to break through offensively when Phil Hughes is pitching.

The right-hander looks to win a career-high seventh straight decision as the visiting Twins try to keep the surging Toronto Blue Jays from moving past them in the wild-card chase Tuesday night.

Minnesota (54-51) led the wild-card race July 17 before dropping 11 of 15 to fall into a virtual tie for the second wild-card spot. It's 8 1/2 games back in the AL Central.
