Open Thread: 7/23/05 Twins @ Tigers, Game 1

vs.

Carlos Silva (7-3, 3.42) takes the hill in the opener of a day-night doubleheader against Sean Douglass (2-0, 2.35). Silva has just six walks allowed on the season, and is hot, getting through his last start, a complete game, in 85 pitches. His weakness this year? The longball. He's given up 17 in 123 innings. That's good news for Twin-killer Craig Monroe, batting .379/.408./.673 in his career against Minnesota. He drove in six of the Tigers' 12 runs last night and brought his season OPS back to .800.
