Twins-Tigers pregame: Pablo López vs. Tarik Skubal

DETROIT – The Twins and Tigers will have their top starters working tonight as they open a four-game series at Comerica Park (5:40 p.m., BSN Extra).

Righthander Pablo López (1-1, 2.84) will take the mound for the Twins against Tigers lefthander Tarik Skubal (1-0, 2.92).

Thursday afternoon's game was rained out, so the teams will play a doubleheader on Saturday.

The Twins (4-6) will use their all-righty hitting lineup against Skubal except Eddie Julien, who hit two home runs against the Dodgers on Wednesday, will be the No. 9 hitter.

Detroit is 7-5.

There is rain in Detroit today, but the teams seem optimistic the game will be played.
