Twins @ Tigers MLB Game Day Preview

Potential (eventual) American League Cy Young Award winner, and one of our betting favorites, RHP Justin Verlander (17-5 2.35 ERA) gets the call for the Cats tonight.

The Twins will counter with RHP Nick Blackburn (7-9 4.36 ERA) who was very sharp in his last outing against the Boston Red Sox as he allowed no runs, and just six hits, over 6.2 innings.

Minnesota brought out the bigs bats as they cruised to a 9-6 win in the series opener. Jim Thome pounded two big flies, the second being the 600th home run of his career, in the Twins victory last night.
