Twins seek rare home series win vs. Tigers

Left-hander Martin Perez gets the start Sunday afternoon for the American League Central-leading Minnesota Twins, who will try to win just their second home series since the All-Star break when they face the Detroit Tigers at Target Field in Minneapolis.

Minnesota, which leads the Cleveland Indians by 2 1/2 games, is just 10-14 at home since the break and has won just one of the seven series at Target Field, a three-game sweep of the Kansas City Royals on Aug. 2-4.

The Twins, who dropped the series opener to Detroit 9-6 on Friday, bounced back from an early 4-1 deficit to even the series on Saturday night with an 8-5 victory.
