Sameul Deduno is trying to follow up his 6 inning, 2 run outing against the White Sox on September 3rd with a similar performance. Just better. In that outing, Deduno struck out 3 batters, but also walked 3. He also gave up a home run to Gordon Beckham and hit Dayan Viciedo. So, he shouldn't do those things. Standing in his way is the Cleveland Inidans. This Indians team has been quite lackluster this season. They've only scored 563 runs. which is the second worst in the American League. Deduno will be facing this lineup. Choo RF Brantley CF Santana DH Canzler LF Kotchman 1B Chisenhall 3B Phelps 2B Lillibridge SS Marson C Pitching tonight for Cleveland will be Justin Masterson.
Masterson pitched well in his last start. He struck out 4 Tigers in 6 innings on 4 hits and generated 11 groundballs, and picked up his 11th win. The Twins will be sending out these players to try to prevent him from picking up his 12th. Revere CF Casilla 2B Mauer C Morneau 1B Willingham DH Doumit LF Plouffe 3B Carson RF Florimon SS Chris Parmelee was scratched from today's game. It hasn't been made public why yet.Other than that, enjoy the game! Go Twins go!
