Slowey Gets First Start Of Season

Twins pitcher will get his first start of the year tonight, as he tries to even the series with the Yankees at a game apiece.

Slowey, who has only made six appearances all season, has spent a fair amount of time injured and on an extended rehab assignment in Rochester, where he pitched well enough in his last few starts to earn a start.

Phil Hughes gets the start for the Yankees tonight, who has 3-4 record with a 6.55 ERA on the season.

For the Twins, what would a preview be without an injury update? Denard Span was placed on the DL, retroactive to August 14th with migraine symptoms, and infielder Luke Hughes was recalled from Rochester to take his spot on the roster.

The Twins lineup for tonight is:

Revere, B, CF
Plouffe, T, RF
Mauer, J, C
Morneau, J,
Kubel, J, DH .
Valencia, D, 3B
Tosoni, R, LF
Hughes, L, 2B
Nishioka, T, SS
