Twins, Pirates ready to open two-game series

With expected starter Homer Bailey going on the injured list, the Minnesota Twins will have to go with a bullpen-by-committee approach for the second straight game when they open a two-game home series with the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night.

And that might not be such a bad thing judging by the results of Sunday's 3-1 victory over American League Central rival Cleveland.

Six Twins pitchers combined to two-hit the Indians as Minnesota won its third consecutive game.
