MLB News and Notes 5/30

  • The Royals have now lost 11 in a row after losing again to the Twins last night. Now they must face Cliff Lee and the Indians tonight. Lee already has had a win this year against the Royals.
  • Mike Mussina has 20 career wins lifetime against the Twins.  He will be going for his 21st win against them tonight. Most of Mussina's success against the Twins came when he was pitching for the Orioles.
  • The Giants are a bad team but they are only 7 games back of first place now. They have three legitimate All-Star candidates in catcher Bengie Molina and pitchers Tim Lincecum and Brian Wilson.
  • Rookie phenom Clayton Kershaw starts tonight against the Mets in New York. Kershaw is the prized prospect of the Dodgers organization. 
  • The best pitching matchups tonight are in the West Coast when Matt Cain goes up against  Greg Maddux and Dustin McGowan goes up against Jeff Weaver.
  • Randy Winn hit two homers to help the Giants sweep Arizona last night. Arizona should bounce back this weekend against the lowly Nationals.
