Twins' Odorizzi hopes to conquer Royals

Minnesota Twins right-hander Jake Odorizzi leads the American League with a 1.92 ERA, and his nine wins trail only Lucas Giolito of the Chicago White Sox, who just won his 10th on Friday night.

But the main spotlight won't be shining on Odorizzi when he starts Saturday night's game against the Kansas City Royals. No, that honor will go to his former batterymate, Joe Mauer.

Mauer, a three-time batting champ and the 2009 AL MVP, will have his No. 7 retired in a special ceremony preceding the game at sold-out Target Field.
