Tonight the Minnesota Twins look to follow-up a win over Trevor Bauer and the Cleveland Indians, with another quality performance, and a further opportunity to stave off the 90 loss mark. Phil Hughes pitched well for the Twins last night, and tonight the ball will be turned over to rookie Trevor May.

First Impressions

Ron Gardenhire gets Danny Santana at shortstop for two games in a row, nice to see.

The Twins are going with the exact same lineup they rolled out last night against Trevor Bauer. It’s actually a very solid lineup as well with all of these guys getting regular at bats.

Can Trevor May keep his string of respectable starts going? The Indians are essentially looking at their playoff chances dissolve at the hands of the Twins.

Game Time

First pitch is scheduled for 6:10 Central from Target Field. Weather is looking great in Minneapolis this afternoon, but could shift towards thunderstorms by this evening.

The game can be seen on Fox Sports North and heard on the Twins Radio Network.
