The first place Angels are set to play the 0-9 Twins who are tied with the Braves for the longest losing streak to start a season since the 2002 Detroit Tigers were 0-11. The problem is, the Twins are due. The good news is, the Angels are arguably missing Minnesota's best two starters in Phillip Hughes and Ervin Santana. For more about the Angels chances for this weekend's series vs. the Minnesota Twins, go to online MLB sports book. 

Garrett Richards who owns a 2-1 record and 2.52 ERA (1-0, 2.08 at Target Field) will look to mow down the swing-and-miss Twins at Target Field. The Twins have struck out 94 times already vs. just 28 walks, so it looks like a great match-up for the Angels' fireballer this evening. Twins young slugger Miguel Sano is tied for the lead in strikeouts with 15, with Park & Buxton not far behind with 13 whiffs a piece.

Joe Mauer is the only Twins player who has had any success of the Garrett Richards, going 3-10 (.300). Albert Pujols is hitting a robust .409 (9-22) against the Twins southpaw, Tommy Millone. Millone owns a 7-3, 4.91 ERA at Target Field and he's 6-2 with a 4.55 ERA lifetime vs. the Halos.

The Angels won five of their seven games against the Twins last season, after going 7-0 against Minnesota in 2014. They've won 11 of their last 13 season series against the Twins.

Next Up:

Saturday: Twins RHP Ricky Nolasco (0-0, 1.29), vs. Angels RHP Jered Weaver (1-0, 1.50), 11 a.m.

Sunday: Twins RHP Kyle Gibson (0-2, 4.22) vs. Angels RHP Nick Tropeano (1-0, 0.00), 11 a.m.
