The Twins have traditionally played well against the sinker ball specialist Armando Galarraga. During an otherwise great year for the Tigers last year, he was 0-4 with a 5.23 ERA against the Twins. He's also coming off two consecutive poor starts after a solid April.
Kevin Slowey has had an up-and-down year so far. In his last two starts, he has given up 5 runs apiece over six innings or fewer. In the two starts prior to this cold spell, he was outstanding, pitching at least seven innings and giving up 2 runs or fewer. Which Kevin SLowey will show up tonight?
