BALTIMORE — The Twins have beaten the Orioles 16 consecutive times, and Baltimore has lost 14 straight games entering today's meeting (6:05 p.m., BSN) at Camden Yards.

The Orioles lost 21 in a row to start the 1988 season, setting a team record for futility. The 14 consecutive losses is second in team history.

Michael Pineda (3-2, 2.62 ERA) pitches tonight for the Twins against Orioles lefthander Bruce Zimmermann (2-3, 5.15).

The Twins' original lineup had Rob Refsnyder, who ran into the center field wall chasing a home run Monday, in center, but he was a late scratch. Willians Astudillo will play right field tonight, with Kyle Garlick moving to center. Refsnyder's injury is a sore quad.

A foot injury will keep Trevor Larnach out of the starting lineup again, although he could play off the bench if necessary.
