Holy forgotten game, Batman! If anyone’s paying attention to the Rochester Redwings playing the Yankees in NY in the middle of this homestand, I’m sorry I forgot there was a game today since it isnt’ in my regular schedule!
Turns out the game is closer than it has any right to be ….
|Revere, CF||Jeter, SS|
|Plouffe, SS||Granderson, CF|
|Cuddyer, RF||Teixeira, 1B|
|Parmelee, 1B||Rodriguez, Al, 3B|
|Valencia, DH||Cano, 2B|
|Dinkelman, 2B||Swisher, RF|
|Hughes, L, 3B||Jones, An, LF|
|Benson, LF||Montero, DH|
|Rivera, R, C||Martin, C|
|Diamond, P||Burnett, AJ, P|
Yeah, flying out to NY for one afternoon game and then flying back to the finish the rest of the homestand is weird… but it went pretty much the way you would expect at this point.
Congrats to a couple record-makers in today’s game though.. a) Ben Revere was able to capture the Twins Rookie stolen base record today. That’s pretty cool especially given that he wasn’t here the whole season. b) Mariano Revere is a kick ass relief pitcher. We all knew that but he tallied Save #602 today which makes him MLB’s All-Time saves leader. I don’t know that anyone is going to surpass that mark any time soon.
