Twins Vs. Yankees: Minnesota Looks To Win The Series

The Minnesota Twins (4-8) look for their third win in four nights Thursday against the New York Yankees (6-6) at Yankee Stadium. The game will be televised locally on FS-N and the first pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. ET.

Twins starting pitcher Anthony Swarzak (0-2, 3.75 ERA) seeks his first win of the season, while his counterpart, Phil Hughes (0-2, 9.00 ERA) is also winless. Swarzak has the lowest ERA on Minnesota's pitching staff, however, the offense has only produced one run in each of his two starts this season.

Justin Morneau powered the Twins to a 6-5 win Wednesday night with two home runs and three RBI. Jason Marquis earned the win, pitching five innings and allowing four runs.

Following Thursday's game, Minnesota heads out to Tampa Bay to begin a three-game set with the Rays on Friday.
