So the Mariners 4-game series is surprisingly 2-1 Twins so far! Who would have guessed? The worst we can do leaving Seattle is a split series which I would have taken in a heart beat if you offered me the opportunity before we started. The chance to WIN a series against a team I consider a real challenge for both pitching and hitting is pleasantly exciting.
Let’s see what Gibson can do for us today – and yay, new kids!
(putting this up early so lineups aren’t done yet – I’ll hopefully come back and give them to you before the game starts!)
|Dozier, 2B||Miller, B, SS|
|Herrmann, C, C||Franklin, 2B|
|Morneau, DH||Seager, 3B|
|Doumit, RF||Morales, K, 1B|
|Colabello, 1B||Ibanez, DH|
|Thomas, C, LF||Saunders, M, LF|
|Plouffe, 3B||Chavez, En, RF|
|Hicks, CF||Ackley, CF|
|Florimon, SS||Blanco, H, C|
|_Gibson, P||_Ramirez, Er, P|
I guess we’ll just have to settle for splitting the four-game series with the Mariners. Gibson had one bad inning, it appears. Chris Colabello notched his second home run
Brian Dozier left the game early, so I guess we’ll have to find out what that’s all about. – JC
