GameChat – Braves @ Twins #3, 1:10 pm

Two low-scoring, one-run games so far in the series and here we are in the rubber match where both teams will be sending their best ballplayers up there to win this interleague series. Oh… well… ok, so not REALLY their best lineups. In fact, this might be the most questionable (to be polite) Twins lineup we’ve seen all year long. Well they’re all collecting Big League salaries, so it’s perfect fair to expect this group to go out and win this game. Go Twins!

Prado, 2B Punto, 2B
Conrad, 3B Plouffe, SS
Heyward, RF Mauer, DH
McCann, C Morneau, 1B
Glaus, 1B Cuddyer, CF
Hinske, DH Kubel, RF
Escobar, Y, SS Young, D, LF
Cabrera, Me, LF Harris, B, 3B
Blanco, G, CF Butera, C
Medlen, P Slowey, P


Well that was just about what we might have expected to see happen with that AAAA line up that the Twins trotted out there today.  Slowey pitched as though he knew going in that he had no shot at a W today.
