Twins hope to ride home-field edge past Astros

Other than the coronavirus, it would be fair to say the Houston Astros were public enemy No. 1 heading into the 2020 baseball season following their sign-stealing scandal en route to winning the 2017 World Series.

But Minnesota Twins right-hander Kenta Maeda, a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers team that lost in seven games to the Astros that year, said that won't provide any extra motivation when he takes the mound Tuesday afternoon against the Astros in Game 1 of their best-of-three American League wild-card series in Minneapolis.

"Not really," said Maeda, who made four relief appearances in the 2017 World Series and picked up a hold in a 3-1 victory in Game 6. "I try not to let anything affect what's going on right now. I'm no longer with the Dodgers. I'm a Twin. I think my main focus right now is to go out there and pitch well to contribute to our team win."
