Know Thine Enemy: Lone Star Ball

Yesterday was one crazy win for the Twins, but like I posted on Facebook, it was still trumped by Ben Revere getting his first career home run. Aaron Hicks was originally in the starting lineup, but was a late scratch due to lower back pain, probably from his catch that he made last night while robbing Donnie Murphy of a home run. Therefore, Danny Santana is starting in his place.

The Twins have Kyle Gibson on the mound, who has been struggling a bit ever since a solid start to the season. Meanwhile, the Rangers get Joe Saunders back from the disabled list, who made it through only 3 2/3 innings in his first start this season.
