Boston Red Sox (23-14) @ Minnesota Twins (17-16)
The Red Sox storm into Minnesota coming off a series win in Detroit having won eight of their last ten games. The bats are clicking, none hotter than Kevin Youkilis, as Jon Lester takes the hill having given up only five hits and one run over fourteen innings in his last two outings. The Red Sox took last years’ three game set in Minnesota, winning two of three, but this is a new look Twins team. Gone are Torri Hunter and Johan Santana, but new faces like speedy Carlos Gomez (13 SB) and old foes Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau are hungry to knock the Sox off.
