Game Preview

The Lions beat the Twins 2-0 in the series opener Tuesday, giving them their fifth win in their last six games, but they still look like underdogs in this one. Even after their recent hot streak, they sit seventh in the standings while ranking sixth in runs scored and sixth in runs allowed. The Twins, meanwhile, sit second, combining the league's fifth-best offense with its second-best pitching. The gap in pitching couldn't be much larger than it is in this game. The Lions' 18-year-old lefty Heo Yoon-dong may have thrown five scoreless in his debut start against the Giants last week, but he allowed nine baserunners in those innings, walking four while striking out just one. The Twins' Casey Kelly, on the other hand, was a first-round pick in the MLB draft back in 2008 and has parts of four seasons of major-league experience to his name. A pair of poor starts early this year has given him an unremarkable 4.05 ERA, but his 2.55 ERA and 1.14 WHIP last season serve as an indication of what he's capable of.
