Game 46: Twins vs. Tigers

New, comments

The offense did as much as they could last night, but the pitching duo of Anthony Swarzak and Francisco Liriano betrayed them, allowing 10 runs between them.

Neither starter for today's game has looked great so far. Carl Pavano has been battling that sore shoulder of his, which oddly enough has allowed him to become rather economical with his pitch counts lately, though it hasn't helped him with the runs allowed department. Meanwhile, the Tigers' Max Scherzer did have 15 strikeouts in his last outing, but he still has a 5.73 ERA for the season. At least the Twins don't have Carlos Gomez anymore to flail at Scherzer's change-up, but still, with a 15-30 record, this Twins team certainly feels like it could rack up 10+ K against Scherzer, right? Hopefully you all are more optimistic than me.

It's raining right now, but Dave St. Peter tweeted that the game will still start on time. I highly doubt that, but we'll see.
