Know Thine Enemy: Bless You Boys

The Tigers send out lefty Matt Boyd to the mound today. He is 9-12 with a 4.16 ERA for the season. Boyd is coming off his shortest start of the year, allowing 6 hits (including 2 home runs) in just 1 1/3 innings against the Royals on Thursday.

Twins starter Jake Odorizzi has been pitching well the last couple months with a 3.38 ERA over his last 9 starts and finally going deeper than the 5th inning into ballgames. Can he continue this trend in what is probably his last appearance on the year? Let’s find out.

Here’s some MN home state music from Owl City. Always liked this song, but also the video with all the retro toys and retro technology is super duper cool.
