The Twins try to keep their upward momentum after a slight stumble last night. Pretty-Much-Our-Ace Tyler Duffey will be matched against lefty Erik Surkamp in game 2 of the series. Byron Buxton is back at the show, and Joe Mauer seems to be remembering that he is, in fact, Joe Mauer, so I think it is okay to feel some (cautious) optimism. It helps that Surkamp has an ERA of 6.55 on the year too.

Today's Lineups:

Eduardo Nunez - SS Coco Crisp - LF
Brian Dozier - 2B Jed Lowrie - 2B
Joe Mauer - 1B Stephen Vogt - C
