Scott Baker is 6-5 with a 3.15 ERA heading into this match up against the Tampa Bay Rays. Thankfully for the Twins, Baker has pitched extremely well at home as of late and more importantly, he has pitched extremely well versus the Tampa Bay Rays. Baker has a 1.89 ERA at Target Field and has won four of his five starts at Target Field. Baker is looking to help the Twins stay hot after a 7-0 win yesterday against the Rays in which Duensing threw a six hitter. Minnesota Twins manager had this to say about Bakers recent success:
"He's confident and he's attacking," Gardenhire said. "I don't think he worries about too much out there. He just goes and attacks.
He'll need to keep that up tonight if he wants to beat the Rays. He's going up against All Star James Shields who is having an amazing season. He has a 2.45 ERA and is 8-5.
Hopefully Baker gets going tonight and the Twins win! Buy Twins tickets with Ticket King!
