Twins Vs. Yankees: Minnesota Tries To Take Series Lead In Game Three

If the Minnesota Twins want to have a shot at winning their first series in quite a while at Yankee Stadium or at least earn a tie in the four game series, they're going to need to avoid having any more two ejection, two and two third inning starting pitching performances. Tuesday's game featured both gaffes and the Twins lost to the Yankees 8-3 as a result after taking game one of the series.

Game three of the series will feature journeyman and New York native Jason Marquis on the mound for the Twins. After missing a large chunk of spring training, this will be Jason's first start of the year. He'll take on Hiroki Kuroda for the Yankees. In his two starts so far this season, Kuroda has gone 1-1 with a 2.63 ERA in games against the Tampa Bay Rays and Los Angeles Angels.

The offense will need to wake up for the Twins if Marquis can't put together a great start, their win in game one came when they scored seven runs.

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