The Twins are scheduled to open their Wild Card Series matchup at 3:38 p.m. Tuesday, with Game 2 set for the same time Wednesday and a third and final game on Thursday, if necessary.

The Twins say legendary manager Tom Kelly, who led Minnesota to its World Series titles in 1987 and 1991, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch to World Series champion Kent Hrbek before Game 1. Former MVP Justin Morneau will throw to the winningest manager in team history, Ron Gardenhire, ahead of Game 2.
