Bedard has the same record so far that Duensing has, but has struck out more batters. He's limited hits better, but walked the same number of batters...least interesting preview ever? Probably.

Duensing's record shouldn't be as bad as it is, and he often has the defense or bullpen to thank for that. Hopefully today they can pick him up and he can manage to come back strong after a rough start last time.

Notes
-
The Twins look to win their first series today. Yeah...their first series win of the year. /crying
-Kevin Slowey was diagnosed with an "acute rectus abdominus strain". He's headed to the DL, and to add even more fuel to the drama-fire, the Twins trainers diagnosed Slowey with a 'mild' strain. Bit of a difference there.
