After the Twins disheartening loss last night, they look to their best starter, Scott Baker, to right the ship and start a new winning streak tonight. With the slow but steady return of the normal starters, most recently Denard Span, the Twins' lineup is finally starting to resemble an actual big-league club's.


After the jump, pitcher information, lineups, and notes.

For Minnesota:


Scott Baker

We all pretty much know what Baker brings to the table for the Twins, and we'll hope he is more effective than about 3/5ths of the rotation has been as of late.

For Anaheim:


Joel Pineiro

#35 / Pitcher / Los Angeles Angels

6-1

Baker's been much more effective than Pineiro has this year, but every time I make a prediction, it seems to go the opposite way, so I'm just going to leave you with his information for the year.
