Tigers-Twins Preview

(AP) -- The Detroit Tigers aren't getting caught looking ahead to the weekend's crucial series against Kansas City, instead doing everything they can to maintain their slim AL Central lead against the last-place Minnesota Twins.

Detroit looks to win a fifth straight game while beating host Minnesota for the fourth consecutive time Tuesday night.

The Tigers (84-66) have won the last three Central titles, but they lead the second-place Royals by just 1 1/2 games with a three-game set beginning Friday in Kansas City.
