The Twins were able to muster just five hits in a 1-0 loss to Hernandez and the Mariners Monday. They will look to have better success on Tuesday against Mariners' starter Hisashi Iwakuma (4-3, 3.64 ERA). Minnesota faced Iwakuma earlier this month and he limited them to just one run over seven innings in a 5-3 Mariner win.
Minnesota will counter with Scott Diamond (10-5, 3.04 ERA). Diamond leads Minnesota in wins and ERA, but hasn't recorded a decision in his last three starts. He was solid in his only outing against Seattle this season, tossing 6-2/3 innings while allowing just two runs.
The Twins are currently riding a cold streak, having won just three of their past 18 games.
Game Date & Time: Monday, Aug. 27, 7:10 p.m. CT
