KANSAS CITY — The Twins finish the 2021 season with a three-game series at Kauffman Stadium that starts today (7:10 p.m., BSN).

The Twins need a sweep to pass the Royals and avoid last place in the American League Central.

John Gant (5-10, 3.74 ERA) will start for the Twins against Royals righthander Jon Heasley (0-1, 3.86).

The Twins lost Thursday to Detroit at Target Field in their home finale, despite two Byron Buxton home runs.

Thoughts off the offseason have already started for the Twins and their fans.
