Sonny Gray, Twins warm up for playoffs vs. A's

Right-hander Sonny Gray will make his final regular-season start for the Minnesota Twins on Thursday afternoon when the American League Central champs go for a three-game series sweep of the Oakland Athletics in Minneapolis.

Gray (8-8, 2.80 ERA), who ranks second to the New York Yankees' Gerrit Cole (2.63) in the American League ERA race, is expected to start the second game of an AL wild-card series on Wednesday in Minneapolis.

Minnesota (85-73) has won six of its past seven games and appears to be peaking at the right time. The Twins improved to 40-27 since the All-Star break with a 6-4, come-from behind victory over the A's on Wednesday, and they are 16-8 in September.
