Draft Day alert!! Don't forget the WGOM football draft is at 7 p.m. CDT today. Oh, also there's a baseball game today.
Slowey vs. Piniero
If Kevin Slowey ever wanted to get out of Gardy's doghouse, this would be his best opportunity. The Twins' bullpen was overworked yesterday when Duensing left due to an injury and the Twins have a doubleheader on Monday and are unsure of who will start in Tuesday's game, so the pitching staff is a mess right now. A complete game from Slowey would make him a hero. Eight innings would leave his manager pleased. Seven innings is almost required.
The Twins have scored19 runs in this series, which just about matched their run total from August. The last time the Twins face Piniero in this ballpark, it resulted in an 11-4 win. A win today would even the season series with the Angels, which would be ... something. GO TWINS!!!
