Tonight's pitching matchup features the Twins' veteran starter, Kevin Correia, throwing against Tampa's solid starter Jeremy Hellickson. Hellickson has won six of his past seven starts, and has pretty much owned the Twins in his four career starts against them with a 3-1 record. Correia, on the other hand, has struggled lately. In his most recent start against the Blue Jays in Toronto, he did last into the sixth inning, but ended up giving up 4 runs on 10 hits (and 3 walks...) in those innings. 10 hits and 3 walks was a season-high for Correia, so tonight's matchup will hopefully be a bounce-back game for the righty.
