The Twins have a 6½ game lead in the American League Central on Cleveland, and the teams start a three-game series tonight at Target Field.

Michael Pineda (11-5, 4.11 ERA) will pitch for the Twins against Cleveland righthander Adam Plutko (6-4, 4.53).

The Twins are coming off an 8-2 road trip, capped by Thursday's 2-1 victory in Boston.

Tomorrow's game is sold out; it's a Joe Mauer bobblehead night. There are a limited number of tickets for tonight's and Sunday's game remaining.
