Game 154: Seattle Mariners at Minnesota Twins

First Pitch: 7:10 pm CDT
TV: FSN
Radio: TIBN/TRN
Know Thine Enemy: Lookout Landing
Current Losing Streak: 10 games. TEN!

With last night's loss, the Twins have now lost more games in a row than they have at any other point in the season. The 10-game losing streak beats a couple 6-game streaks, a 7-game streak, and a 9-game streak. That's...well, that's a lot of losing. Here's hoping for a win tonight, because even if this has been a lost season for a long time, losing still sucks.

Pitching for Minnesota:


Kevin Slowey

Hipster Slowey has had a rough go of things this season, and looks to win just his first game of the year. With the Seattle offense, this shouldn't be too difficult a request, but we all know how things have been going.

Pitching for Seattle:


Michael Pineda

Pineda was selected to the All-Star game this year, in his first season with the Mariners. He's been solid enough for them, and since most of my predictions about how the Twins offense will do against certain pitchers have been way off, I'll just leave it at that.

Notes
-The Twins would have to go 4-5 in the last nine games of the season to avoid 100 losses. I'll be interested to see if they can do it.
-Denard Span may be back in the Twins' lineup today, according to Joe C. Some good news in a season riddled with bad news.
-Jason Repko has been listed with concussion symptoms. Because, you know, 2011.
-Justin Morneau's surgeries went well, and the Twins hope he can be in the park for the final series against KC next week.
