After starting 0-9 the Twins look to sweep the series against the Angels. On the mound for the Twins is Kyle Gibson, who has walked 8 batters in 10.2 innings as he's struggled with his control. His last start came against the White Sox where he pitched 5.2 giving up 3 runs, only 1 of which was earned.

The Angels counter with Nick Tropeano (troh-pee-AH-noh), who tossed 5 scoreless innings and struck out 6 in his only start this year.

I'll probably be fishing this afternoon (barring rain), so I might not be in the game thread much today.
