The Twins play the Astros tonight at 6:40 (FSN), with Michael Pineda (2-1, 5.64 ERA) facing Houston's Gerrit Cole, who is off to a rough start (1-4, 4.71).

Back to a fairly traditional lineup tonight, although Ehire Adrianza will play third base instead of Marwin Gonzalez. Adrianza (pictured) was Monday night's hero; his home run off Justin Verlander accounted for the game's only run.

It's a little rainy at Target Field, but folks seem optimistic the game will be played. Remember Wednesday's third game of the series is back to a 7:10 p.m. start because it's on ESPN.
