Tigers Vs. Twins: Detroit Tries To Sweep Series In Minnesota

The Detroit Tigers will try to keep their bats cracking and earn a sweep on the road to complete their weekend series against the Minnesota Twins on Sunday afternoon.

Young, right-hander Rick Porcello will be on the mound for the Tigers looking to put his recent struggles behind him to earn the win. Porcello enters the game with a 3-4 record and 5.29 ERA and could use the type of run support the Tigers have generated in the first two games in which they've belted 28 hits.

The Twins will give the ball to right-hander P.J. Walters to try to avoid the sweep. Walters have been solid since joining the starting rotation, most notably in his last outing in which he posted a complete game win over the Chicago White Sox. Walters is 2-1 with a 2.91 ERA on the season.

The game at Target Field will start at 2:10 p.m. ET and will be televised on Fox Sports Detroit.
