Here we are, now having crossed the 90 loss threshold again, the Twins are looking at Sunday as an end to the bleeding that is the 2014 baseball season. After dropping last night’s game to Josh Collmenter, the Twins will be turning the ball over to Kyle Gibson to get them a win.

First Impressions

  • Mauer is back in the lineup tonight, along with Brian Dozier.
  • Danny Santana and Kennys Vargas will both get a day off today as they are in the midst of minor slumps and the season is coming to a close.
  • Josmil Pinto makes an entrance into the Twins lineup.
  • While both the Diamondback and Twins are poor teams, how sad does Arizona look on paper?

Game Time

First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 Central from beautiful Target Field in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota.
