Covers Preview - Minnesota second baseman Brian Dozier is batting just .243 but his production soars whenever the Twins play the Detroit Tigers. Dozier is batting .365 with four homers and 16 RBIs against the Tigers this season entering Saturday’s third contest of a four-game set in Detroit. The Tigers need to worry about more than Dozier as they hold just a one-game lead over the Kansas City Royals in the American League Central race.
