Storylines
1. The Twins are pulling a page of the Wild's book and are running a line change tonight. Starters Jorge Polanco, Eddie Rosario, and Mitch Garver will all get days off in game one of the series.
2. Chicago has been playing some good baseball of late, going 6-4 in their last ten but Renteria's squad has an opportunity with a four game set here to maybe flirt the idea of a run for the division or at the very least a Wild Card berth (Currently 6.5GB of the Rays for spot #2).
