Twins host Astros in battle of first-place clubs

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins had just finished a marathon 15-inning game Sunday that lasted a Target Field-record 6 hours, 26 minutes when they had to turn their attention to Monday's game.

In less than 18 hours, Minnesota would be hosting a matchup of first-place teams as the Houston Astros come to town. The Twins began their preparation by making moves to clear space for more pitching.

Oh yeah, they had to get over losing Sunday's series finale to the Tampa Bay Rays in which Minnesota's scheduled Wednesday starter, Hector Santiago, ended up pitching the 15th inning and taking the loss.
