Twins Vs. Mariners Preview: Minnesota Looks To Get Back In Win Column

The Minnesota Twins have lost eight straight games to the Seattle Mariners, and they'll be looking to change that on Wednesday night when the two teams match up for the third game of a four-game series. After getting blanked 1-to-0 on Monday night, the Twins mustered only four hits in a 5-to-2 loss on Tuesday night.

On the hill for the Twins will be Samuel Deduno, who has hurled five quality starts in his last seven appearances. Deduno, though, did fall back down to earth a bit in his last start on the road against the Texas Rangers, giving up 11 hits and seven earned runs in five innings. Deduno, though, has been markedly better at home this year, posting a 3.44 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in three starts.

The Twins will face Seattle starter Jason Vargas, who will be battling his own home/road issues. Vargas has been a different pitcher away from the extremely friendly confines of Safeco Field -- on the road this year his ERA has been a full two runs higher than it has been at home.
