Astros-Twins Preview

(AP) -- Ervin Santana has fallen hard in August, but in his next start he'll try to keep the Minnesota Twins from falling any further in the wild-card race.

The slumping Santana and the Twins will go for a series win at home Sunday against the AL West-leading Houston Astros.

After Minnesota (66-63) dropped 1 1/2 games back of Texas for the AL's second wild-card spot with Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Astros, Santana (2-4, 6.05 ERA) may not be the right man to make up the ground.
