Twins eager to return home, open against Athletics



AP Sports Writer

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Games have already been played for a week all across the majors.

The Minnesota Twins could be in for another tough year after averaging 97 losses over the past three seasons.

Target Field is no longer a novelty, with the gates set to open for a fifth season.

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire already secured his 1,000th career victory. He crossed another potential item of intrigue off the list with a win at Cleveland on Saturday.

Don't discount the draw of opening day, though. That first pitch at the home ballpark is always special, and the Twins were eager for it this week. They host Oakland on Monday afternoon, with a promising spring-like weather forecast to go along with it.
