Tuesday, the Minnesota Twins return to Target Field for the team's home opener.
It comes after taking two in Chicago in convincing fashion.
However, less than a week into the major league season, there's already a COVID-19 scare.
The Marlins' home opener against Baltimore was called off, as was the New York Yankees' game at Philadelphia.
The Twins are set to take on the St. Louis Cardinals at 7:10 p.m.
Here's a look at the match-up Tuesday:
PITCHING PROBABLES: Cardinals: Carlos Martinez (0-0, 0.00 ERA, 0.00 WHIP, 0 strikeouts) Twins: Homer Bailey (0-0, 0.00 ERA, 0.00 WHIP, 0 strikeouts)
LINE: Twins favored by 1 1/2 runs; over/under is 9 1/2 runs
BOTTOM LINE: Minnesota hosts St. Louis for the 2020 home opener.
