Twins Vs. Orioles: Cole De Vries Starts For Minnesota In Series Finale

Cole De Vries will try to bounce back from his worst outing of the season in Thursday's series finale between the Twins and Orioles.

De Vries, 2-2 with a 4.37 ERA, got knocked around last Saturday against the Oakland Athletics, who have scored the third-fewest runs in baseball. The rookie gave up seven runs in five innings. In the start prior to that, he held the Texas Rangers -- who have scored the second-most runs in baseball -- scoreless over seven innings. So the potential is there -- just not the consistency.

Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen is 7-5 with a 3.80 ERA.

Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe is riding a 16-game hitting streak. For all the Twins' problems this season, they are one of just two teams, along with the Giants, to have three separate 15-game hitting streaks. Josh Willingham had two in addition to Plouffe's.

First pitch is scheduled for 12:10 p.m. CT.
