Know Thine Enemy: Royals Review
|2011 - Luke Hochevar||3-5||12||12||0||0||0||0||78.0||75||47||43||13||23||37||4.96||1.26|
The Twins have seen Hochevar so many times, he might as well be their batting practice coach. Generally the Twins have had pretty good success against him, but then again they're not the only ones.
Hochevar had a rough April, but although his ERA in May was better it was worse in many ways. He struck out 14 batters all month but walked 15, and of course he allowed too many base runners. I know it's a lot to expect the Twins to win three in a row, but less three games in one series, but if they can manage to keep from shooting themselves in the foot one more time they will have a real chance at their 20th victory of the year.
|2011 - Nick Blackburn||4-4||11||11||1||0||0||0||70.2||72||33||28||10||21||38||3.57||1.32|
Blackburn turned on one hell of a month in May. Here's our first opportunity to see if he can carry it forward. Ground balls, baby. It's all about ground balls.
