Slowey makes major league debut for Twins

Jun 1, 2007 - 1:27 PM Minnesota (27-25) at Oakland (26-26) 10:05 pm EDT

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) - Kevin Slowey makes his major league debut for the Minnesota Twins on Friday when he takes the mound against the Oakland Athletics.

It's the first meeting between the teams since the Athletics recorded a sweep in last season's American League Division Series.

Seeking its fifth straight win the Twins turn to Slowey, a 2005 second-round pick. The righthander was 6-2 with a 1.54 ERA with three complete games in nine starts for Class AAA Rochester.

The Athletics counter with Joe Kennedy (1-4, 3.62 ERA) who aims to avoid his third straight loss. The lefthander surrendered seven runs and eight hits in 4 2/3 innings in an 8-3 loss to Baltimore on Saturday. He is 2-4 with an 8.56 ERA in seven games vs. Minnesota.

With a win, Oakland would move back over the .500 mark.
