After a weird one-day break, the Twins once again take on the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at Target Field. The first game went...well, it could have gone better. Now that the Twins are the only winless team in the league, they really need to battle their tails off, use extra grit and hustle, and play like true gamers tonight.

The Twins are throwing their veteran righty out tonight, and hopefully he can pitch well enough to give the offense a chance to actually score some runs.

Angels


Jered Weaver

The Angels ace is throwing tonight, and ummm...let's hope the Twins can get some hits tonight. Searching for some positivity...Weaver lost 8 games last year. So he's uh, not perfect?
