Tonight, the 10-26 Twins head to Detroit to take on the 18-18 Tigers. Detroit is throwing the forever-20-year-old Rick Porcello on the mound, while Minnesota is throwing Nick Blackburn and his 7.18 ERA out there. One thing Twins fans can look forward to, however, is the return of Justin Morneau from the DL. He's missed the last 14 games due to a sore wrist, and his return to the lineup should provide at least a little boost to the offense. ...Right?

Lineups and such after the jump.

Minnesota

Lineups posted when available, or in the comments, as I'll be at work and likely unable to post. Thanks!

Detroit

Ditto.

Things to look for:
-
Justin Morneau's return to the lineup.
-Chris Parmelee's return to AAA.
-How many HRs Nick Blackburn gives up in 5 innings this time.

Go Twins!
