The Twins are 38-42 at Target Field this season, one of the reasons they are in last place in the American League Central with four games remaining.

Tonight is the final home game of the season (6:40 p.m., BSN), with Twins rookie Joe Ryan (2-1, 2.46) facing Tigers lefthander Tarik Skubal (8-12, 4.13).

The Twins won 5-2 on Tuesday and are looking to sweep the three-game series.

Ryan pitched for the U.S. Olympic team, winning a silver medal in Tokyo. He was acquired from Tampa Bay along with pitcher Drew Strotman, on July 22 in the Nelson Cruz trade.

It will be his fifth career start as he auditions for a spot in next year's rotation.
