The Twins start their second series of the season against the Detroit Tigers just a single game behind MoTown in the AL Central standings. The Twins took two of three in the season opening series with Tigers despite dropping the Opening Day game against Verlander. The Twins get off a little lighter tonight facing Max Scherzer. The Twins will counter with the wildly ineffective Mike Pelfrey who is still less than one year removed from Tommy John surgery.
The Twins will need to get the bats going tonight in order to pick up a victory.

One really bad inning and it’s a loss to the Tigers. Not really much more to say about it than that. Pelfrey looked pretty good two times through the Detroit order, but that wasn’t good enough.
