First Pitch: 2:05pm CDT

Know Thine Enemy: Lonestar Ball
- 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.
