Red Sox-Twins Preview

(AP) -- Scoring first has been a mantra behind the Minnesota Twins' revival. An autograph from a child seems to have sparked Mike Napoli's surge.

The surging Twins look for another fast start Monday when they host Napoli and the Boston Red Sox in the opener of this three-game set.

Minnesota (25-18) has turned around its season with a 16-6 stretch, scoring first in 12 of those victories. The Twins have tallied the opening run in seven straight games, winning five after scoring the first five runs in an 8-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday.
