Twins face Tigers with focus on field, not scoreboard

DETROIT -- Winning is more important than scoreboard-watching for the Minnesota Twins as they seek to stave off the competition for the second American League wild card.

Minnesota enters its Friday game against the Detroit Tigers with a 2 1/2-game lead over the Los Angeles Angels and Texas Rangers in the wild-card hunt.

"We talked the other day," Twins manager Paul Molitor said. "We've got to try to win games. What they do is obviously going to be a factor.
