-The good news for the Twins is that in his career, Harrison only has a 1-2 record against Minnesota, sporting a 4.76 ERA with only 8 Ks. Hopefully--hopefully--they take advantage of this tonight.
-The Twins have only won one game in the last week-plus. Their last win came against Oakland, and before that...not since Detroit have they managed to pick up a win. During that time, I will note, the team was swept by the Seattle Mariners. Twins baseball, ladies and gentlemen!
-Despite the great teams Texas has fielded as of late, the all-time record between the Twins and Rangers is pretty close, with the Rangers just edging out the Twins, 251-249.
