So it’s been raining just about the whole day here in Minnesota but the sun just came out at my house about half an hour ago.. I am thinking they may actually be able to get great game weather!
Let’s see if we can’t actually get a better GAME than we got last night though…
|Jackson, A, CF||Thomas, C, CF|
|Dirks, LF||Mauer, DH|
|Cabrera, M, 3B||Doumit, C|
|Fielder, 1B||Morneau, 1B|
|Martinez, V, DH||Arcia, LF|
|Peralta, Jh, SS||Plouffe, 3B|
|Kelly, D, RF||Parmelee, RF|
|Infante, 2B||Dozier, 2B|
|Avila, C||Florimon, SS|
|Sanchez, An, P||Deduno, P|
That’s the kind of ballgame you watch and it brings back memories of the way the Twins used to play baseball on a regular basis. Seven excellent innings of work from Sam Deduno just demonstrated what can be accomplished when you get good starting pitching. Jared Burton struggled just a bit again, but Glen Perkins closed the door in the 9th inning.
Joe Mauer did his Joe Mauer thing collecting a two-out, two-RBI single in the sixth inning.
But Birthday Boy Trevor Plouffe is the clear choice for BOD tonight. 3 for 3, a double, a home run, 3 ribbies and a couple of runs scored in his first game back from the Disabled List. Welcome back, Trevor!
