Twins Play Rays 10 Aug 12

The Twins open a three-game series against Tampa Bay tonight at Target Field. Former Gopher Cole De Vries starts for the Twins and righthander Jeremy Hellickson goes for the Rays. The Twins say second baseman Tsuyohi Nishioka will be in uniform tonight, in part because Trevor Plouffe remains on the DL with a bruised thumb. Nishioka has been error-prone in the field and has struggled at the plate in his first three games of the season. Tonight’s game starts at 7:10. Catch all the action on 860 AM KNUJ.
