|2012 - Justin Verlander||8-5||17||17||4||1||0||0||123.2||92||43||37||10||29||121||2.69||.98|
The Twins look to make it six in a row against Verlander, who is having another fantastic season. It's hard to pick out a weakness here, or anything specific that the Twins offense should be on the lookout for. Basically you just have to hope he has a bad day, or you hope that your own pitcher is up to the task of matching zeroes.
|2012 - Brian Duensing||1-4||32||2||0||0||0||0||41.2||40||19||19||3||11||24||4.10||1.22|
In his third start of the season you have to start hoping for more from Brian, who tossed three innings on 63 pitches for his first start and four innings off 66 pitches in his second. Hopefully he can push for 80 or 85 tonight, and hopefully that's enough to get him through five. But at some point, certainly not late in this game, the job of matching Verlander will fall to the bullpen.
