Twins manager Paul Molitor planned to use all his position players during the day-night doubleheader. It would have helped if the Twins had won the first game.

But they didn't. And now they will try to avoid getting swept at home and suffering a fourth straight loss with an altered lineup in game two.

Righthander Drew Rucinski is here and will be the 26th man for this game.

Jose Berrios will try to be the man to stop the slide in his first Target Field appearance since being called up. He held Cleveland to one run over 72/3 innings in his season debut on Saturday in Cleveland.
