The Twins look to at least split the series in New York tonight, and will be throwing Jason Marquis out in a Twins uniform for the first time tonight. He'll be facing the Yankees' Hiroki Kuroda, who's had a couple of decent starts thus far. Hopefully the Twins won't forget how to hit the ball tonight, and will be able to get some runs off Kuroda tonight.
Lineups and pitcher information after the jump...
#21 / Pitcher / Minnesota Twins

Well...he's wearing a Nationals hat in his picture. So there's that, I guess. Marquis will be making his first big-league start for Minnesota after tending to his daughter after an injury. He had a decent spring, and a decent stint in Rochester, so we'll see how tonight ends up.
For New York:
#18 / Pitcher / New York Yankees

Hiroki Kuroda may be the most intense pitcher...ever. Holy.

I've been away from Twitter today, so not seeing Danny at 3B is surprising. And welcome.
