Tigers-Twins Preview

(AP) -- A return to Target Field appears to be just what Detroit's Yoenis Cespedes needed to break out of a mini slump.

Cespedes looks to continue to feast on Minnesota pitching and help the Tigers to a fifth win in as many games against the Twins this season Tuesday night.

The Tigers (14-6) outscored the Twins 22-1 in sweeping a three-game series to open the season, with Cespedes going 5 for 13. He arrived in Minnesota amid a 2-for-13 slump before hitting a three-run homer and a double in Monday's 5-4 win, Detroit's third straight following a four-game losing streak.
