A little mustache magic? — Twins at Rangers 8/24

By: Kelly Thesier/MLB.com

ARLINGTON — After nearly getting no-hit by the Rangers pitching staff on Monday night, the Twins will try to see if they can get the bats going at the Ballpark in Arlington tonight against right-hander Colby Lewis.

With Carl Pavano on the mound, Drew Butera is catching tonight and Joe Mauer is in the DH slot. That leaves Jim Thome on the bench. Thome is 4-for-6 with a home run off Lewis in his career. Still, there are very few numbers against Lewis. The only other that stands out is Orlando Hudson who is 4-for-7 off the right-hander.
