The Minnesota Twins kick off a four-game series against the New York Yankees on Monday.

The Minnesota Twins are currently at a disappointing 2-7 after their first nine games, but the cure for what ails them isn't coming very quickly as they head into a four game series against the New York Yankees on Monday. The Twins are 2-9 all time at new Yankee Stadium and have been even worse all time with Ron Gardenhire at the helm, so they're going to need to put their best foot forward to work on a couple wins to get their season back on track after the early stumbles.

Carl Pavano will take the mound for the Twins. He has an 0-1 record through two games along with a 5.93 ERA. Interestingly, the no decision came in his worse game where he allowed five runs in against Los Angeles his last time out. His loss was a 4-2 decision against the Orioles. Not the start he was hoping for after going 17-11 with a 3.75 ERA in 2011.

The Yankees will send out Freddy Garcia, who allowed four runs in four innings in his first outing of the season. The two pitchers are out of form but the Yankees offense certainly has been all right, leading them to five wins in their last six games which included a couple wins against the LA Angels in their first home series.

The game will be at Yankee Stadium at 7:05 p.m. ET.
