The Twins haven't lost since Sunday. That's, like, five days. Meanwhile, Cleveland is slumping and has surrendered first place to the Whities. Who knows what wonders await tonight?

Heavers:

He's been pitching banged-up, and it's shown. Will his velocity be back up tonight? If not, you'd have to guess the results won't be much different from his last few appearances.

Shut the Twins out earlier this season. Did so without throwing a single strikeout, which is impossibly difficult to do.



Your lineups, they're after the jump:

Yard-leavers (courtesy Joe C.):

Twins:

1. Denard Span, CF
2. Ben Revere, RF
3. Joe Mauer, DH
4. Josh Willingham, LF
5. Justin Morneau, 1B
6. Ryan Doumit, C
7. Brian Dozier, SS
8. Alexi Casilla, 2B
9. Jamey Carroll, 3B

Tribe:

1. Shin-Soo Choo, RF
2. Jason Kipnis, 2B

4. Jose Lopez, DH
5. Michael Brantley, CF
6. Casey Kotchman, 1B
7. Johnny Damon, LF
8. Lonnie Chisenhall, 3B
9. Lou Marson, C

Notes:

  • Sounds like it's been raining in Cleveland all damn day. No WX delays have been announced as of this writing (4:30 Central). However, per the Pioneer Press' John Shipley: "Tarp still on field. Dark." Rain delay wouldn't surprise.
  • Doumit and his spooky eyes are catching this evening, not Mauer nor Sweet Drew.

Enjoy the game, everybody.
