Twins update: The Twins need to take advantage of the Nationals, a team with the second-worst record in the National League.

The Twins must beat teams that present favorable matchups. ... Luis Castillo has hit safely in 23 of his past 26 games.

Nationals update: The Twins connections are strong with the Nationals. Shortstop Cristian Guzman is batting .327 since returning from the disabled list after a strained left hamstring ... Tony Batista, the Twins' Opening Day starter at third base last season, was recently called up from the minors and is batting .316. ... Both Jason Simontacchi and Levale Speigner pitched in the Twins' minor league system. ... Nationals righthander John Patterson has been out since May 6 because of a pinched nerve in his throwing arm.
