Dodgers Face Off With Twins In Rubber Game At Target Field

The Dodgers look for a rare interleague road series win on Wednesday morning as they battle the Minnesota Twins in Target Field. Rubby De La Rosa takes the mound for the Dodgers, making the fifth start of his young career. Scott Baker gets the call for the Twins.

De La Rosa has been wild at times as a starter, with 15 walks in 20 2/3 innings so far, but has also shown electric stuff, as his 22 strikeouts will attest. The 22-year old right-hander is 3-2 with a 5.26 ERA in seven games this season, which include three relief appearances. He has lost his last two starts.

Baker is 5-5 with a 3.39 ERA for the Twins this season, and has given up just one run in 24 innings in his last three home starts. Baker leads the Twins with 92 strikeouts this season, and is tops on the staff with a 3.29 strikeout-to-walk ratio this season. Yesterday's win for the Twins snapped a six-game losing streak.
