Bring on the Orioles.

After taking three of four from the Red Sox, the Twins turn their attention to another AL East power tonight at Target Field as Minnesota takes on Baltimore.

Mike Pelfrey (3-3, 6.35 ERA) pitches for the Twins tonight, against the Orioles' Jason Hammel (5-1, 4.10).

Saturday, Vance Worley tries again to pick up his first win of the year, and on Mother's Day, Scott Diamond takes the hill.

The Twins were 8-23 one year ago after 31 games. This year they're 16-15, an eight game improvement so far.

After the Orioles (21-14) , the Chicago White Sox (14-18) and Boston Red Sox (21-14) come to Minneapolis to round out the nine-game homestand.
