Pitcher information, lineups, and notes after the jump.
#53 / Pitcher / Minnesota Twins
Feb 24, 1982
|2011 - Nick Blackburn||6-4||14||14||1||0||0||0||91.0||96||39||32||12||24||47||3.16||1.32|
Blackburn has been absolutely solid for the Twins for the past month or so. Going up against Vogelsong tonight, he needs to continue his streak of brilliance. Oh, and he gets to bat, so that'll be fun.
#32 / Pitcher / San Francisco Giants
Jul 22, 1977
|2011 - Ryan Vogelsong||4-1||12||10||1||1||0||0||65.2||56||15||14||4||18||54||1.92||1.13|
Vogelsong's been pretty good for the Giants this year, though hopefully the Twins surprise offense will be able to hit him as hard as they did Bumgarner last night.
1. Ben Revere, CF

-AccuScore says the Giants have a 65% chance of winning this game. Hmm.
-The Twins have the chance to win 9 in a row tonight. That would tie their season record for a losing streak.
Game During the Game:
How many times do Dick and/or Bert mention last night's first inning? My money's on at least 5.
Have a good evening, everyone!
