Playoff-bound Reds, Twins tangle again, looking for more

Right-hander Michael Pineda makes his first career start against the Cincinnati Reds as the Minnesota Twins try to take another step toward a second consecutive American League Central title on Saturday night in Minneapolis.

The Twins (35-23) hold a one-game lead over both the Chicago White Sox (34-24) and Cleveland Indians (34-24) heading into the final two games of the regular-season.

Minnesota can clinch home field advantage for the wild-card round by winning one game or Cleveland losing one game, and can claim the AL Central title by finishing with two victories.
