The Twins look to end a 6 game losing streak tonight against a powerful Boston lineup and 11-game winner Jon Lester. Easy as pie, right?
Pitcher information, lineups, and notes after the jump.
#53 / Pitcher / Minnesota Twins
Feb 24, 1982
|2011 - Nick Blackburn||7-9||23||23||1||0||0||0||135.2||165||85||69||19||46||71||4.58||1.56|
Blackburn's been pretty awful lately. I'm going to hope that changes tonight.
#31 / Pitcher / Boston Red Sox

|2011 - Jon Lester||11-5||21||21||0||0||0||0||133.2||114||50||48||16||47||131||3.23||1.20|
That's not a very flattering picture of Jon Lester.

-It looks like Justin Morneau will be returning to the Twins' lineup when they make their trip to Detroit next week. It will certainly be nice to have the Canadian Crusher back with the club.
-Kevin Slowey has been removed from Gardy's doghouse for at least one start, getting the ball in Cleveland on Sunday in place of Scott Baker, who is now on the DL.
-It would really be nice to not get swept twice in a row, at home. Let's avoid that, shall we?
