After beating the Yankees last night, the Twins look to continue playing spoiler for the Baltimore Orioles, who are now just a game and a half back from the Yankees in the AL East. Keeping the Yankees' hopes alive for a division title is CC Sabathia, whose last start included striking out eleven and going a solid 8 innings to secure the Yankees a win. Throwing for Minnesota today will be Samuel Deduno, who just had his worst major league start against the Tigers, giving up a career-high seven earned runs in a career-low 2 1/3 innings. The Twins will hope for the best with Deduno today, who is often hit-or-miss in his starts.

Notes
-The Yankees magic number to reach the postseason is 4, and their number to win the AL East is 7. The Twins would make a lot of baseball fans happy by postponing both of those things happening at least one more day.
-After missing last night's game due to shoulder strain, Josh Willingham is out of today's lineup again. Considering we're down to just 7 games in the season, they might as well rest him and keep him healthy for a potential bounce-back next season.

Go Twins!
