Support our pitchers.

Tonight in Seattle, the Twins will attempt to snap their 5-game losing streak, taking on the Mariners. Matt Garza will be the starting pitcher for the Twins with Horacio Ramirez toiling for the M’s.

We need to look no further than the last six starts for each pitcher to give us an indication of how Seattle is flying and Minnesota is floundering.

In the aforementioned six-start span, Ramirez has struggled, posting an earned run average of 8.48. Meanwhile, Garza has been stellar with his 1.80 ERA over the same time frame.

The difference?

Ramirez has a record of 2-2.

Garza, only 1-3.

I think we can decipher which team has the more productive offense.
