Technically, the Twins could take a series from the Tigers in Detroit: So you're telling me there's a chance

Scott Diamond was brilliant in his 2012 debut and then duplicated the effort in his second outing. Can P.J. Walters muster the same magic? It'd be nice, barring another 11-run effort.

So, this guy. In his first start of the year, Walters mixed in a lot of breaking balls against right-handed hitters but was largely fastball-changeup against lefties. That pattern is likely to be similar today, although how he selects his pitches in certain situations may vary a bit more. Going back to the start of 2011 batters have hit .571 off his curveball though, so it might be fun to just avoid that option in general.
