Games notes: Game one of a three-game set between the two American League teams with the fewest wins. Friday’s game also starts a nine-game homestand for the Tigers. Tarik Skubal takes the bump for Detroit; he has struggled with the long ball, giving up eight home runs in 22 innings. … Minnesota starter Matt Shoemaker hasn’t been much better for a disappointing Twins team coming off an extra-inning affair to end its home series with the Texas Rangers. Shoemaker has yielded seven homers in 23 innings and has struck out just 14 batters.
