The Twins will host the Houston Astros today for Game 3 of their best of 5 ALDS series at 3:07 this afternoon, pregame on WJON at 2:00. Game 4 is currently scheduled for 1:07 p.m. Wednesday but that time could change if the Texas Rangers close out the Baltimore Orioles tonight in Texas.
The Twins open the best of 3 wildcard playoffs at home against the Toronto Blue Jays Tuesday afternoon at 3:38 p.m. Pablo Lopez will start on the mound for the Twins in Game 1 with Sonny Gray starting Game 2 Wednesday.
The Twins are 6-4 but played without some key offensive contributors Monday due to injury. Star Tribune Sports Columnist Jim Souhan joined me on WJON. The Twins played without regulars Carlos Correa, Byron Buxton, Max Kepler, Alex Kirilloff and Jorge Polanco Monday and managed just 4 hits and 3 runs.
