Game 80: Twins at Cubs

Approaching the halfway point, the Twins look to get back on track.

First Pitch: 1:20 PM CDT


Radio: WCCO 830, TIBN

Know thine enemy: Bleed Cubbie Blue

Lance Lynn has been solid in his last 7 starts, going 41.1 innings, and striking out 40 batters with an ERA of 2.40. His mound adversary is Jon Lester, who is 10-2 with a 2.18 ERA. Hopefully Lynn can contain the Cubs offense, which has torched us for 24 runs in the first two games of this series.

Joe Mauer has 8 RBI in this series already; he had 7 RBI in his previous 26 games. Not that it means anything, it's just a fun stat.

I'll be at work for the start of the game, but should be there a couple hours into it. Hopefully we're winning by then.
