Game 8: Twins vs. Toronto

New, comments

The Twins will have plenty of Mondays off this year - but tonight isn't one of them. Tonight, the Blue Jays come to town; Kevin Slowey goes for the Twins, Jesse Litsch for the Jays. The game is on Fox Sports Net locally in Minnesota, and is also on the usual radio networks.

Toronto's gotten out of the gate pretty quickly this year, taking three of four from Detroit and then two of three from Cleveland.

Slowey got the win in last week's slugfest with Seattle, allowing fewer runs than Carlos Silva to get the victory. Litsch lost his first start, giving up five runs on a walk and seven hits over six innings against Detroit and losing 5-1.The details on tonight's starting pitchers, and the lineups:

I'll actually be at the game tonight instead of in the comments - so behave yourselves, ya hooligans.
