Twins Vs. Blue Jays: Recent Call-Up Scott Diamond Goes For Second Win

The Minnesota Twins will send Scott Diamond to the hill in Sunday's series finale against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Diamond got blasted in seven starts last season (he was 1-5 with a 5.08 ERA), but was solid in his lone start since being called up last week. He pitched seven shutout innings with six strikeouts in Minnesota's lone win in a three-game series versus the Los Angeles Angels.

Diamond will be going up against Ricky Romero. Romero, who had a 2.92 ERA last season, is 4-0 thus far in 2012 -- part of the reason the Jays are a solid 19-15.

The Twins are 9-24 and three games back on the Kansas City in the quest to stay out of last place in the division.

After the Jays, Minnesota will host the AL Central-leading Cleveland Indians.

First pitch Sunday will be at 1:10 Central.
