Tonight the Twins take on the Mariners in another pitching duel between these starting pitchers:
Twins:

W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2012 - Scott Diamond 10-5 20 20 1 1 0 0 130.1 138 51 44 13 20 71 3.04 1.21

Diamond gave up 2 earned runs over 2.1 innings pitched in his last outing before being ejected for throwing a ball behind Josh Hamilton's back. MLB slapped Diamond with a six day suspension, but he was having none of that, so now he's here pitching on the run from the law! Take that MLB!! Get 'em Scotty!!! (Note: Diamond actually appealed his suspension, and is allowed to continue playing until the appeal is resolved.)
Mariners:

2012 - Hisashi Iwakuma 4-3 23 9 0 0 2 0 84.0 77 36 34 13 35 69 3.64 1.33

Iwakuma, a 31 year-old Japanese rookie, started against the Twins in Seattle back on August 17th. He gave up 0 earned runs, 4 hits, and 1 walk over 7 innings pitched. He also had 6 strikeouts.
