Tigers Vs. Twins: Detroit Looking For First Win In Series After Dropping Two To Minnesota

Both game one and game two of the four game series between the Detroit Tigers and Minnesota Twins featured a ton of offense, with 10 runs or more in both games. Unfortunately for Detroit, the Twins were just a bit better at getting their men home leading to two run losses in both games.

Fortunately, the Tigers have their ace on the mound for game three on Wednesday, and they're hoping that Justin Verlander can at the very least slow the Twins bats down enough to get the win. Verlander has been his usual dominant self this season with an 8-5 record and 2.59 ERA on the table along with an impressive 121 strikeouts. Verlander has won five straight games against the Twins.

He'll face off against Brian Duensing from Minnesota. None of the pitchers in the series thus far has been great, but asking Duensing to out-pitch Verlander may be a tough ask. Duensing has put together a 1-4 season with a 4.10 ERA.

The game will be at Comerica Park at 7:05 p.m. ET, assuming of course there isn't another rain delay like the one that stifled Tuesday's game.
