Apologies for the tardiness of this post, as I forgot Cleveland, Ohio, was in the Eastern Time Zone, meaning the first pitch is an hour earlier than I suspected. Gah. Here we go:
Starting pitchers:

W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2009 - Carl Pavano 2-2 5 5 0 0 0 0 31.0 31 14 14 2 7 24 4.06 1.23


Pavano gets to face his most recent former team for the first time. The Twins could really, really use a quality start in this spot. A complete game might not be a bad idea, for that matter.

W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2009 - Jeremy Sowers 5-9 18 17 0 0 0 0 101.1 103 56 55 8 43 43 4.88 1.44


In six career starts against the Twins, Sowers is 2-3 with an ERA just under six. That's my way of saying he's hittable.
