The A's are in Minnesota for a three-game series. They're hoping to get a tune-up in Target Field.

The Oakland Athletics will be kicking off a road trip against the Minnesota Twins on Monday. This road trip may be just what the doctor ordered after the A's were swept at home by the New York Yankees and didn't look impressive in any of the three games.

The Twins have been one of the worst teams in baseball this seasons and the A's will be hoping that the offense-friendly confines of Target Field will be friendly to them. Josh Reddick has been on a tear of hitting home runs as of late, but unfortunately, few of those homers have come with anyone in base. The A's will be looking to put up some more runs in preparation for Manny Ramirez and Yoenis Cespedes rejoining the team shortly.

Monday's game will begin at 11:10 a.m. PT and will be televised on CSN California. You can find the radio broadcast on 95.7 FM The Game.
