Lineups and notes after the jump...
-Despite their pretty terrible season, the Twins have still had a good amount of success against Kansas City this season, winning 10 of their 16 games so far.
-The Twins are 3rd in the AL for stolen bases with 118. This is the most the Twins have stolen in one season since 2001, when they stole 146 bases.
-In his career, Joe Mauer, noted terrible baseball player and all-around awful person, is hitting a wimpy .519 against Luke Hochevar. His most recent success was that lovely grand slam on Sept. 1.
