Tigers Open Crucial Four-Game Series with Last-Place Twins
Tigers must play well against lesser teams down stretch
As the month of August enters its final days, the Tigers need to take advantage of low points in their schedule. This includes the four-game series that opens on Friday night against the Twins in Minnesota. Lefty Robbie Ray will take the mound for the third time since being recalled from Triple-A. He has lost both of his starts since coming back to the Majors with Detroit. He allowed four runs in each of those starts.

Even though they are in last place in the Central and are on-pace to record a fourth straight 90 loss season, the Twins will still play to win every single game on the schedule. That is why manager Ron Gardenhire received a vote of confidence to return to the dugout next year from General Manager Terry Ryan. Tommy Milone will make his third start for the Twins, second at home,after being acquired from Oakland.
