The Tigers hope to enter the All-Star Break on a winning note, which would be all the more excellent because it would mean a sweep of the hated-rival Twins. That would also even up the season series, 6-6, with a three-game set at each team's ballpark in the coming months.

It won't be easy. Carl Pavano has had a terrific season, and had been a Tiger-killer in the past. Meanwhile Andrew Oliver will be making just his fourth major league start and got roughed up his last time out -- against the Orioles, no less. (I guess he and Cliff Lee can commiserate).

Don't forget to tune into the Futures Game at 6 p.m. on ESPN2. Outfielder Wilkin Ramirez will represent Detroit on the World Team, and Marquette's Adam Hamari will be the home-plate ump.
