After a much-needed win last night, Carl Pavano and the one-game-winning-streak Twins look to defeat the Oakland Athletics at Overstock.com Coliseum tonight. And no, I did not make up the name of their field.

Pitcher information and linenups after the jump.

We really need a quality start from Pavano tonight, as it appears that Glen Perkins is the only reliable bullpen arm we have and he can't really pitch every night. Pavano has had a couple pretty rough starts so far this year, but hopefully he can settle in and pitch well against the A's tonight.



Brandon McCarthy

McCarthy has already beat us once this year (April 10), so it would only be fair for us to beat him tonight. That's all I'm saying.
