Game Thread: Twins @ Indians

After a rough loss yesterday, the Twins look to even the series.

Jason Miller

Yesterday was a rough game to lose. After Chris Parmelee's late home run gave the Twins the lead, the bullpen wasn't able to hold it together. Jared Burton gave up a run in the 8th, and Casey Fien gave up the game-winning double in the 10th inning during his 2nd inning of work.

Joe Mauer will be the DH today with Ryan Doumit catching, and if you're playing "Where's Oswaldo?" today, well, he's on the bench with the lefty Scott Kazmir pitching. As for the Indians, Nick Swisher and Lonnie Chisenhall enter the lineup for the first time this series.
