The Twins need to win 3 out of 4 against the Yankees to turn the collective baseball world on its ear.  Realistically, they HAVE to steal this one here.  So, on with it, then.

Starting pitchers:


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2009 - Nick Blackburn 11-11 33 33 3 0 0 0 205.2 240 103 92 25 41 98 4.03 1.37


If you would've told me in August that the starting pitcher I wanted on the mound to take out the Yankees on the road in the playoffs would be Nick Blackburn, I'd have told you pull my other leg, as it plays showtunes.  But here we are.  Blackburn's been superlative of late.  He needs to be better than that tonight.


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2009 - A.J. Burnett 13-9 33 33 1 0 0 0 207.0 193 99 93 25 97 195 4.04 1.40


It's Burnett's first playoff start.  The conventional wisdom is that the Twins need to get to him early and be patient.  In other news, Carlos Gomez and Delmon Young are in the lineup.  /starts drinking

Lineups:



 

Gardy plugs Go-Go into center and moves Kubel to DH.  Good call, says Howard.  Why not, says I.

Enjoy the biggest game of the season, everybody.
