Know Thine Enemy: Bluebird Banter

Joe Mauer is hitting .322, so he needs to get going with those hits if he wants to beat out Mike Trout (.325) and/or Miguel Cabrera (.329) for the American League Batting Title.

Other than that there is a lot to care about happening in this game.

Your starting pitchers:

Blue Jays


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2012 - Chad Jenkins 0-3 12 2 0 0 0 0 27.0 27 14 14 4 10 14 4.67 1.37

The Blue Jays wanted to see rookie Chad Jenkins more than scheduled-starter Carlos Villanueva, so Mr. Jenkins is starting tonight. Jenkins posted a 4.15 ERA in the only other two games he started this year.

Twins


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2012 - Anthony Swarzak 3-5 43 4 0 0 0 1 91.2 101 53 50 14 28 60 4.91 1.41

Swarzy is pitching instead of Samuel Deduno because Sammy did something to his eye.
