It’s a Father’s Day special as the Twins will look the secure the series victory vs Arizona this afternoon.
Chris Archer (1-2, 3.35 ERA) takes the mound for the Twins after a series of successful starts for a Twins rotation that has desperately needed them. He’s not going to go deep into the game, but he’s consistently given the Twins 4-5 solid innings, and what else can you ask for from a guy who’s barely pitched in two years. The Diamondbacks will counter with 33-year-old late bloomer Merrill Kelly (5-4, 3.68 ERA). Kelly didn’t make his MLB debut until after his 30th birthday, but has been a solid staple in the Diamondback’s rotation over the last 3+ seasons.
