The first game will feature a pair of right-handed pitchers — Noah Syndergaard (1-3, 6.12 earned-run average) for the Dodgers against Pablo Lopez (2-2, 3.47 ERA) of the Twins. Syndergaard will wear adhesive on his right index finger to protect a cut he sustained in his last start at Milwaukee.
Lopez, who is among the strikeout leaders in the American League with 62, has at least six strikeouts in nine straight starts. The Twins took two out of three games from the Chicago Cubs over the weekend, including a 16-3 win Sunday after recording team highs for runs and hits (18) this season. In the two victories, the Twins hit eight home runs.
The Twins (23-18) lead the AL Central by 3½ games over Cleveland.
