At a glance:

The Sox face the Twins for the first time this season. Last year, they were 7-12 vs. Minnesota (3-7 at Target Field). The Twins are off to a roaring 33-16 start under first-year manager Rocco Baldelli and are threatening to run away in the AL Central. Minnesota hit 8 home runs in Thursday's lopsided win over the Angels. The Twins lead the majors with 98 homers (in only 49 games) and 289 runs scored. Lopez is has allowed only 5 earned runs over 19⅔ innings (2.29 ERA) in his last three starts. Manny Banuelos (shoulder strain) should be able to come off the injured list and start vs. the Twins on Saturday.
