Going for the series win: Twins vs. White Sox

By: Kelly Thesier/MLB.com

MINNEAPOLIS — Today is a big start for Nick Blackburn and a big game for the Twins, as they go for the series win over the White Sox.

Blackburn’s rotation spot has appeared tenuous of late. He’s 1-4 with an 11.12 ERA in his last five starts. So he could really use a good outing today coming off back-to-back impressive starts by Francisco Liriano and Carl Pavano.
