Tigers-Twins preview

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Detroit Tigers will try and continue their dominance over the Minnesota Twins when the clubs play the second of a three-game series at Target Field on Wednesday night.

Detroit's bats came alive in the middle innings in the series lid-lifter on Tuesday, as the Tigers posted three-run innings in each the sixth and seventh frames in an 8-3 victory. The win improved Detroit to 8-2 against their Central Division mates in 2016.

The Tigers lineup, now featuring a seemingly reinvigorated Justin Upton, appears as deep as ever. Detroit blasted 14 hits on Tuesday with five players posting multi-hit efforts, including Upton.
