Game 46: Yankees @ Twins

New, comments

First Pitch: 6:10 PM CDT
TV: FSN North
Radio: Twins Radio Network
Know Thine Enemy: Pinstripe Alley

The Twins and Yankees won't have much time to regroup after playing out the final innings of last night's rain-delayed tilt this afternoon. Game time had already been moved up an hour to accommodate the ESPN television scheduling, so the two teams will get Game Two underway as quickly after the originally scheduled 6:10 PM CST game time as they can.

After jumping out to a great start early in the season, the Twins have become exceedingly painful to watch lately. They've left a total of 24 runners on base in their past two games, both losses, continuing to display a frustrating lack of timely hitting.

They'll hope to turn it around tonight against Andy Pettitte, who completely stymied them in a Saturday afternoon contest at Yankee Stadium a couple weeks ago. Taking the hill for the Twins will be Francisco Liriano, who has struggled in recent starts and needs to get back on track.

The Twins would really be doing themselves a big favor by hitting a few balls out of the park this evening. This offense needs to start gaining some momentum because they're looking awfully flat, particularly in their home ballpark. That's not good.

Due to the unique circumstances surrounding today's competition, lineups for tonight's game aren't likely to be made available until very shortly before first pitch. Whenever someone stumbles across them, please throw them up in the comment section.

In the meantime, let's all hold our breaths and hope the Twins can get this series evened out.
