These two teams were the two highest scoring teams in the National League and they hit the most home runs in the NL.  And the wind is gusting out to right field today.  Look for a high scoring affair.

Next Game

Minnesota Twins
@ New York Yankees

Yankee Stadium

Brian Duensing vs CC Sabathia

Mostly cloudy. Winds blowing out to left field at 15-30 m.p.h. Game time temperature around 60.

The Yankees were by far the highest scoring team in the Majors, but the Twins were still the 4th highest scoring team in the AL at 5.01 R/G.  We'll likely see quickly how much of a hangover the Twins will be suffering from yesterday's epic win over the Tigers.

Next Game

St. Louis Cardinals
@ Los Angeles Dodgers

Wednesday, Oct 7, 2009, 9:37 PM EDT
Dodger Stadium

Chris Carpenter vs Randy Wolf

Partly cloudy. Winds blowing out to right field at 5-10 m.p.h. Game time temperature around 60.

The Cardinals won 5 of the games between these two teams this summer.  They have to feel good about a Carpenter vs. Wolf matchup, but the Dodgers have such a deep lineup it should be a close match.
