Cliff Lee's fastball keeps getting faster. According to FanGraphs, Lee's fastball averaged 87.2 mph in his rookie year of 2002. Seven years of steady incline later, it's averaging 91.2 mph. Fun fact. At any rate, Lee's been the unlucky benefactor of no run support, courtesy of his offense. He's now strung together nine consecutive quality starts, doing the job of the Ace he is. Luckily for the Twins, the splits insist he's not the same pitcher on the road as he is in the comforts of Cleveland. Can Minnesota take advantage?Lineups
