Right-hander Matt Shoemaker will make his Target Field debut as a member of the Minnesota Twins on Sunday afternoon as the American League Central leaders go for their third straight series victory to start the season against the Seattle Mariners in Minneapolis.
Minnesota took two of three at both Milwaukee and Detroit to open the season and then won Thursday's home opener with Seattle, 10-2. But the Mariners evened the series with a 4-3 victory in 10 innings on Saturday afternoon with Mitch Haniger, who homered earlier, driving in the winning run with a sacrifice fly.
That dropped the Twins to 0-3 in extra-inning games this season. Minnesota is 5-0 in regulation contests.
