Know Thine Enemy:

The Twins and Royals will finish off their four game series tonight at Target Field. The Twins are currently leading the series two games to one with hopes of taking the final game tonight. Matt Wisler will open the game for the Twins with Devin Smeltzer likely coming in as the primary pitcher. The Royals will start 22 year old rookie Kris Bubic who throws left handed and has a 5.40 ERA through three starts.
