Last night was fun. Can the Twins do it again? Let's take a look at the starting pitchers:

Tigers


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2012 - Doug Fister 6-7 17 17 1 0 0 0 106.0 106 45 41 9 21 89 3.48 1.20

Fister has a 1.79 ERA since the All-Star Break and has basically been brilliant. However, he has historical struggled against our mighty Twins, having given up 10 runs on 17hits over 10 innings against Minnesota this season. He has also never won at Target Field--a revealing and key statistic.
