Know Thine Enemy: Royals Review


Tonight, Nick Blackburn makes his return to the rotation, after the Twins sent Carl Pavano to the DL with a shoulder injury. Blackburn will be going against Kansas City's Felipe Paulino, a right-handed pitcher who's had himself a nice season so far, going just 3-1, but with a 1.70 ERA. In his 6 starts this year, Paulino has shut out his opponents 4 times. He's thrown anywhere from 95 up to 113 pitches in each of his starts since May 5th, so the Twins are going to have to hit him hard and early if they want a chance to take the series in KC tonight.
