Game 62: Twins at Rangers

New, comments

The Twins need to win a game. The game where Byron Buxton makes his Major League debut would be a good time to get that win.

First Pitch: 2:05pm CDT

TV: FS-N

Radio: Go 96.3, TIBN, BOB FM
Know Thine Enemy: Lonestar Ball

Pre-game notes

  • Byron Buxton debuts today. Did you know? He'll bat ninth.
  • Eduardo Nunez bats fifth as the designated hitter. So that's still happening.
  • Phil Hughes was Minnesota's stopper of losing streaks in 2014. He hasn't been the same pitcher this year, but winning today would be huge for a club that's in something of a tailspin.
