Rocco Baldelli talked to media pre-game on August 15th

After playing 13 of their last 16 games on the road, the Twins are back home to begin a nice, long run of home games as they enter a stretch that could define their season.

The Twins play 12 of their next 14 – and 18 of their next 26 – at home.

The Twins lineup gets a boost with Royce Lewis’ return. He’s been out with an injury to his oblique muscle, returning to face the Tigers after a four-game rehab stint in St. Paul.

The Twins will honor Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera before Tuesday night’s game – his 112th appearance in Minnesota, which ties him for 6th all-time among Twins opponents.
