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.

Twins hoping to play role of spoiler this weekend

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.

When the Twins host the Tigers for an AL Central contest on Friday night, we will place our bets over at the online sportsbook found at TopBet.eu. At TopBet, the Tigers are underdogs on the road against a struggling Twins club. Despite this, we will place 10 percent of our bankroll on Detroit and the -103 money line as they take home the victory in the opener.
