Home Sweet Home for Twinkie Hurlers

I was chatting with my friend Joy the Sox fan over lunch today and she passed on an interesting tidbit about the Twins (a team, by the way, she despises). 

Minnesota is currently a half game out of first place with a 59-47.   Yet, their pitching staff show a wide gap in their performance on the road and at home.  Their ERA at home is third in the majors at a nifty 3.19.  When they travel, however, it slides all the way down to 28th in the MLB at a miserable 5.52 ERA. 

You can see the splits here.

That results in a 36-19 home, 23-28 away record for the year.
