The Royals are on a 6-game losing streak. They still lead the Twins by 2 ½ games. THAT'S the kind of April it's been.

Baker has been a light in the rotation's darkness. His last two starts: 14 innings, 15 Ks, 2BBs, 0.64 ERA. Also, he bought a powerball ticket last Saturday and WASN'T EVEN CARDED. Everything's coming up Milhouse!

Bruce Chen: still in the league.
Lineups, notes and Jesse's epic poem about the royal wedding are after the jump:

- As linked earlier by J-Lu, per 1500ESPN's Tom Pelissero, Francisco Liriano has one more start to get right, or the Twins will probably plug Kevin Slowey into the rotation. Quoth the Gardy: "That's kind of why we're working on Slowey, getting him stretched out, in case we decide after this next start whether we're going to do something or not."
- Actual non-shitty news: If you follow LaVelle's link above, you'll see that Jim Thome might be able to pinch-hit this evening, and Jason Repko is good to go.
- National treasure Ozzie Guillen has been suspended two games for his post-ejection Twitter outburst earlier this week. I hope he tweets about it.
