Twins Vs. Tigers: Brian Duensing Looks For Third Win Of The Season

The Minnesota Twins were able to snap their most recent losing skid on Monday night with a 9-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers. On Tuesday night, they'll trot out Brian Duensing to try too keep that streak alive -- though that might be easier said than done.

Duensing has just one win in his seven starts for the Twins this season, an ugly statistic considering his 5.68 ERA over his last 10 outings shows that the win-loss record isn't an aberration. His most recent outing resulted in helping the Cleveland Indians snap an 11-game losing streak as he gave up 11 hits and six runs in a loss.

The Tigers will counter with Doug Fister who, unlike Duensing, has been very solid as of late. He's been much worse when it comes to pitching against the Twins than other teams in his career, however, compiling a 1-6 record against Minnesota.
