The Twins look to actually win a game for the first time in approximately 13 weeks tonight, as they face the Texas Rangers in Arlington. Throwing for the Twins will be Samuel Deduno, whose magical 4-1, 3.33 ERA record is very deceiving. For Texas, Matt Harrison will be pitching, coming off a great outing in Toronto, where he gave up just two hits over eight innings. Let's just hope Deduno's magic somehow holds tonight. No one can still explain how he allows so many baserunners, but so few runs...

That is quite the flattering photo of Matt Harrison, I must say.

Notes:
-The good news for the Twins is that in his career, Harrison only has a 1-2 record against Minnesota, sporting a 4.76 ERA with only 8 Ks. Hopefully--hopefully--they take advantage of this tonight.
-The Twins have only won one game in the last week-plus. Their last win came against Oakland, and before that...not since Detroit have they managed to pick up a win. During that time, I will note, the team was swept by the Seattle Mariners. Twins baseball, ladies and gentlemen!
-Despite the great teams Texas has fielded as of late, the all-time record between the Twins and Rangers is pretty close, with the Rangers just edging out the Twins, 251-249.

GO TWINS!
