Tough loss last night. Just when it looked like the Twins were gong to knock Mark Buehrle out of the game, the veteran increased the amount of slop he was throwing over the plate and the Twins never adjusted.

But now they can prove that they have short memories.

Since the first week of the season, the Twins are 11-2 following a loss. This is where Torii Hunter's dance party theory comes into play. He feels not having a dance party after losses motivates the team to return to winning the next day. We'll see if Mr. Pavlov is right about this.

Hunter actually is not in the lineup today, as manager Paul Molitor is looking at the big picture and giving Hunter a rest day. Funny, he's just one game away from tying Justin Morneau on the Twins' all-time games list with 1,278.

Also, righties are batting just .152 against Toronto's Aaron Sanchez while lefties are hitting .316 against him. That's why Chris Herrmann and Eddie Rosario are in the lineup today.

The Twins can't send a better pitcher to the mound to stop a streak before it starts than Kyle Gibson. In his last six starts, Gibson is 3-1 with a 1.54 ERA.
