The Twins will try to halt their current losing streak at two with projected starter Nick Blackburn (4-7, 7.42 ERA) scheduled to take the mound. The right-hander has struggled with consistency throughout the season, coming off of a loss to Boston earlier in the week. Blackburn is 0-3 with three no decisions in his last six starts for the Twins.
Adding to the challenge for Minnesota will be Tampa Bay's ace David Price (14-4, 2.71 ERA), slated to start the game for the Rays. Price is coming off of a no decision to Baltimore in his last start but he gave up just two hits and no runs in eight innings of the Rays' 1-0 loss.
The game is scheduled to start at 6:05 p.m. CT and will be televised on Fox Sports North.
