So far: Twins royal pain to Tigers, O's


In 2012, the Minnesota Twins (4-2) won just one of their first 12 series.

In 2013, they're two for two, winning two of three from Detroit and Baltimore in the first week of the season.

Up next: Kansas City (3-3), as the Twins visit Kaufman Stadium for the Royals' home opener Monday afternoon.

Minnesota's Kevin Correia (0-0, 2.57 ERA) faces Ervin Santana (0-1, 6.00), as the Twins look for their third straight victory.

For Correia, it's his second start in a Twins uniform. In his AL debut on Wednesday, the right-hander threw seven innings of two-run ball in a 3-2 victory over Detroit.

Looking ahead: Mike Pelfrey tosses for Minnesota Tuesday against K.C.'s Jeremy Guthrie, and on Wednesday it's Liam Hendriks versus Wade Davis.

When the Twins return home Friday against the New York Mets, starter Scott Diamond is expected to make his 2013 debut for Minnesota.
