Odorizzi, Morton face off in Twins-Rays showdown

The Minnesota Twins continued their success Tuesday against former Cy Young Award winners. On Wednesday, the Twins will see if they can fare just as well against a candidate for this year's version in the American League.

The Twins will look to lock up a series win when they host the Tampa Bay Rays in the middle game of a three-game set. Jake Odorizzi (10-3, 2.58 ERA) is scheduled to take the mound for Minnesota against his former club, which will counter with AL ERA leader Charlie Morton (8-1, 2.31).

The Twins helped deepen the struggles of reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Blake Snell on Tuesday night, when they tagged him for seven runs over 3 1/3 innings in a 9-4 victory.
