Game 64: Twins at Tigers

MLB: Minnesota Twins at Detroit Tigers Leon Halip-USA TODAY Sports

First Pitch: 12:10 CDT



KNOW THY ENEMY: Bless You Boys

Possible best-pitcher-in-baseball (did you expect to ever be able to say that) Jake Odorizzi takes the mound for the Twins, as they look to bounce back from last night’s loss and take the series from AL Central pretenders Detroit.

Ryan Carpenter is the pitcher for the Kitties. He has a 6.23 ERA, and has spent some time in Triple-A already this year. The long-suffering Twins fan in me expects the Twins to make him look like Justin Verlander out there, but maybe this Twins team is different.

I’m not nearly as interesting as your usual hosts, but I also forgot I volunteered to do this until a couple minutes ago. If you want to complain, please send them all directly to Joel. He will then lob a water balloon at me for each complaint.

Fun Fact, Ryan Eades is the first player to ever wear number 80 for a MLB team.
