Red Sox-Twins Preview

(AP) -- The Minnesota Twins' turnaround started with a five-game winning streak, and now superb pitching is a big reason why they're on the verge of matching it.

The Twins look to improve on the AL's best home record by sweeping a series from the Red Sox for the first time in nine years Wednesday.

Minnesota (27-18) has reeled off 18 wins in 24 games, outscoring opponents 21-7 while winning four straight. The Twins have compiled a sterling 1.75 ERA over that stretch with the starters completing at least seven innings in each game.
