Season 106, Game 5

Minnesota (1-3) at Cleveland (3-1), 5:05 PM (STO)

Starting Pitchers (2005 Stats):

Cleveland: Jason Johnson (8-13, 4.54 ERA)
Minnesota: Scott Baker (3-3, 3.35 ERA)

The majority of Baker's 2005 season was spent in AAA. His line with Rochester:

134.2 IP, 3.01 ERA, 123 H, 107 SO, 26 BB, 15 HR

Baker's forte is his control, so he'll fit right in with the rest of the Twins starters. His fastball tops out arond 93 mph, and his best pitch is probably his changeup.
