Know Thine Enemy: Lookout Landing

Orlando Hudson's situation as it now stands: will join the club on Tuesday, team hopes for him to play in 2-3 days, according to GM Bill Smith. X-rays and a CT scan showed no new injury to his wrist. Everyone exhale.

The rest of your game info is after the jump:


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2010 - Francisco Liriano 4-3 9 9 0 0 0 0 59.2 58 21 21 2 19 59 3.17 1.29

The Twins ace has a personal three-game losing streak he's looking to snap (he had a no-decision in his last start against the Yankees).


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2010 - Doug Fister 3-2 9 9 0 0 0 0 62.0 49 15 14 2 10 26 2.03 .95


Hey, why are you laughing? What? Oh, REAL MATURE, GUYS. He leads the American League in ERA, for pity's sake. Should be a good matchup.

Minnesota Twins @ Seattle Mariners

05/31/10 10:10 PM EDT

Minnesota Twins Seattle Mariners
Denard Span - CF Ichiro Suzuki - RF
J.J. Hardy - SS Chone Figgins - 2B
Joe Mauer - C Franklin Gutierrez - CF
Justin Morneau - 1B Milton Bradley - LF
Jim Thome - DH Mike Sweeney - DH
Michael Cuddyer - 2B Jose Lopez - 3B
Jason Kubel - RF Josh Wilson - SS
Delmon Young - LF Rob Johnson - C
Nick Punto - 3B Matt Tuiasosopo - 1B

That's not a typo behind Cuddyer's name.

Stuff:

  • Tigers lost to the A's again today, so the Twins have a 4-game lead entering tonight's game.
  • If you've watched any SportsCenter this weekend, you know that the Mariners have lost consecutive games on walk-off HRs. Yesterday's loss was particularly brutal, as Seattle led 7-2 after 6 innings. That said, Kendry Morales still probably feels worse.
  • As cmathewson noted this AM, Seattle's struggles this year are NOT on their starting pitching. Felix Hernandez has the highest ERA of the four starters the Twins will face.

Enjoy the game, everyone.
