Make or break time

The Twins resume play Friday with three key series by the end of July:

Friday-Monday: At Houston

The Astros outscored the Twins 40-16 in three games in May and scored 19 in their last game before the break.

Monday-Wednesday: vs. N.Y. Yankees

Rookie phenom Aaron Judge is one of five Yankees players with at least 40 RBI. The Twins have two.

July 24-26: At L.A. Dodgers

Now we know why the Dodgers were reluctant to include Cody Bellinger in a package for Brian Dozier.
