The division rival Detroit Tigers and Minnesota Twins are set to renew hostilities on Saturday when they meet at Target Field.

The Tigers will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Jordan Zimmermann in this game. Zimmermann has a 6-7 record and a 5.58 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Twins will be Kyle Gibson. The right hander has a 6.29 ERA to go along with a 5-8 record this season.

Zimmermann notched his first victory away from home in more than a year Monday at Kansas City, allowing one run on seven hits while striking out seven over 6 2/3 innings. The outing also marked his first win in seven turns overall since June 3, although his ERA (6.29) and batting average against (.310) on the road are among the worst marks in the majors. Brian Dozier is 3-for-13 with four strikeouts against Zimmermann, who gave up five runs in 4 2/3 frames in a loss to Minnesota on April 13.

Gibson lost for the fourth time in his last five decisions Sunday at Houston, surrendering four runs on six hits and a season-high tying four walks in six frames. The 29-year-old has struggled mightily in his nine home outings, going 2-5 with a 7.20 ERA after giving up a season-high seven earned runs to Baltimore in his last turn before the All-Star break. Gibson yielded a total of 12 runs (11 earned) while dropping each of his two outings versus the Tigers in April and is 4-7 with a 5.88 ERA in 12 starts against them.

Oddsmakers currently have the Twins listed as 125-moneyline favorites versus the Tigers, while the game’s total is sitting at 10½.

Even as the Detroit Tigers are stumbling to their worst start after 95 games since their disastrous 43-119 season in 2003, no team in the American League Central has been better at defeating their division rivals. The Tigers (44-51) attempt to improve their 23-18 mark inside the Central on Saturday when they continue their three-game set in Minnesota against the Twins.

Despite losing Miguel Cabrera to a bruised collarbone in the fourth inning Friday, Victor Martinez carried the offense with his first multi-homer game of the season to lead Detroit to a 6-3 victory in the series opener. Even though the Tigers stand seven games under .500, they remain 5 1/2 games behind Cleveland in the division and could get Cabrera back Saturday after precautionary X-rays came back negative on his shoulder. Meanwhile, the Twins (48-47) fell to Detroit for the fifth time in seven meetings this season and are 1-14 against Detroit in their last 15 contests at Target Field. Minnesota, which entered Friday with a chance to take back sole possession of first place in the division for the first time since June 25, instead dropped 1 1/2 games behind the Indians.

Minnesota lost its last outing, a 6-3 result against the Tigers on July 21. Bettors who backed the Tigers at 117 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (9) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

Last time out for Detroit, they were a 6-3 winner as they battled the Twins on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Tigers at 117 were rewarded, while the 9 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
