Twins Vs. Mariners: Starting Lineups For Game Three

The Minnesota Twins can't seem to string together quality wins. They have been losers in 16 of their last 19 games, and are riding a two-game losing streak, which includes a 1-0 shutout and a 5-2 loss at the hands of the Seattle Mariners. They're currently in the middle of a four-game set and have to right the ship immediately to get away with a split against them, and to avoid a sweep for the second time by Seattle in less-than 20 days.

Minnesota will send Samuel Deduno to the mound, sporting a 4-2 record. He'll be up against Jason Vargas for Seattle. They're both coming off losses, but Deduno gave up seven runs in his most recent outing and is much more of a "needs to bounce back" candidate.

As far as lineups go, Minnesota is generally sticking to what they've been putting out there, with Chris Parmelee being the only addition, replacing Darin Mastroianni. Below, we've got the full lineups for both teams.
