Twins hope to extend home dominance over Tigers

Less than 24 hours after scoring the winning run as a pinch runner, right-hander Kenta Maeda will take the mound as the Minnesota Twins look to beat the Detroit Tigers for the ninth straight time in Minneapolis.

Maeda (4-4, 4.63 ERA), who is 2-2 with a 4.05 ERA in seven career starts against Detroit, is 1-0 with a 2.81 ERA in three starts against the Tigers this season. He has allowed five runs on 12 hits over 16 innings while striking out 21.

Maeda raised a few eyebrows when he entered Monday night's series opener as a pinch runner for reliever Caleb Thielbar to start the bottom of the 10th as the designated runner at second base.
