Detroit won today, so the Twins will need a win this evening to stay 3.5 up in the Baseball Norris and salvage a split against Seattle.

By the numbers, at least, the Twins are catching a break by drawing Felix Hernandez this evening. God, Seattle is just weird this year.

Let's take a look at the starters and other such like after the jump, okay?

  • The Twins are resting J.J. Hardy because of continue soreness in his left wrist.
  • The perfectly-named Jeff Manship threw a complete game, 9-0 shutout for Rochester today, walking none and striking out six. Reusse does not mention if PAVSTACHE is responsible, but I think we can make our own assumptions.

Enjoy the game, everybody.
