The game starts at 1:10 and will be on Root Sports and 93.7 The Fan.
Today's Lineup - Gregroy Polanco RF, Starling Marte LF, Cutch CF, Aramis Ramirez 3B, Jung-Ho Kang SS, Neil Walker 2B, Pedro DH, Fran Cervelli C, Travis Ishikawa 1B (Liriano P)
Starling's back from his tummy ache, so that's good news. Pedro remains at DH and Ishy at 1B. Apparently A-Ram can't slump his way out of cleanup; guess Clint figures he's due. Fran gets another day-following-night stint; hope that doesn't wear him down as the dog days heat up.
- Former Twin Francisco Liriano is still the all-time leader in strikeouts at Target Field with 258.
- Yes, you can go home again: Third Base Coach Rick Sofield was selected by Minnesota in the first round of the 1975 June Draft, then made his big league debut and played three seasons (1979-1981) with the Twins.
- Today is the last interleague game of the season for the Pirates. The Bucs are 12-7 v the AL going into today.
- RHP Tyler Glasnow is a step closer; he was promoted to Indy today.We don't expect to see him in September - that's not the Pirates way - but gives him the opportunity to be pitching in Pittsburgh sometime in 2016.
