Mariners' Kikuchi gets next shot at cooling Twins' bats

Left-hander Yusei Kikuchi will try to find a way to cool down the red-hot bats of the Minnesota Twins on Sunday afternoon and help the host Seattle Mariners avoid a four-game sweep by the American League Central Division leaders.

The 27-year-old Kikuchi (2-1, 3.64 ERA) hasn't faced the Twins in his career and comes in off a no-decision in his last start against Oakland, a 6-5 win by the Mariners on Monday during which he allowed three runs on five hits over six innings. That came after an impressive 10-1 victory in New York where he held the Yankees to just one run and three hits over 7 2/3 innings.

Kikuchi will have his hands full against a Minnesota team that has won five in a row, including an 18-4 victory on Saturday night that saw the Twins bash six home runs, becoming the first team in major league history with five games of five or more homers in their first 45 games of a season.
