Twins-Orioles Preview

(AP) -- The Baltimore Orioles are on the verge of their first home sweep of at least four games against the Minnesota Twins in 48 years, though they'll have to overcome a challenging matchup to accomplish that goal.

The AL East leaders seek their longest home winning streak of the season and 22nd victory in 28 games at Camden Yards on Monday when they try to keep Minnesota's Phil Hughes from earning his 15th victory.

Since a surprising three-game sweep at Wrigley Field last weekend, Baltimore (79-56) has bounced back with a 6-1 record on its current homestand following Sunday's 12-8 win.
