Don’t look now, but the Twins -- who have won four straight -- are breathing down the necks of the Chicago White Sox.

Sure, it’s for third place in the AL Central, but after that 10-game losing streak any upward momentum is welcomed.

Minnesota (23-28) -- winners of five of six -- takes on Seattle (23-31) tonight at Target Field. On the hill, Minnesota's Mike Pelfrey (3-5, 6.85 ERA) versus Seattle's Hisashi Iwakuma (5-1, 2.35 ERA).

Each pitcher has the task of trying to slow down a team that went on home run binges Thursday night.

The Twins cranked out four homers in an 8-6 win over Milwaukee. The Mariners hit five homers in a 7-1 win over San Diego.
