*** RAIN DELAY OVER…
A weekend series in Detroit… this could either be a lot of fun or.. not so much.
In case you missed it, Sam Fuld is officially on the Concussion DL and Nunez has been brought up in his place – plus some other roster news:
All in all, it makes for a bit of the same ol’ same ol’ kind of feeling with the injury bug.
|Dozier, 2B||Kinsler, 2B|
|Suzuki, K, C||Hunter, To, RF|
|Plouffe, 3B||Cabrera, M, 1B|
|Colabello, 1B||Martinez, V, DH|
|Kubel, LF||Jackson, A, CF|
|Nunez, DH||Castellanos, N, 3B|
|Parmelee, RF||Avila, C|
|Hicks, CF||Romine, A, SS|
|Santana, D, SS||Davis, R, LF|
|Hughes, P, P||Verlander, P|
I didn’t get to even listen to anything but the last two innings tonight, but I was pretty much shocked to see the Twins not only scored twice on Justin Verlander, but that Phil Hughes had kept the Tigers off the board for 7 innings. How cool is that combination?
Yes, Perk gave up a run in the 9th, but with the critical strike outs, we’ll let that pass this time.
Kurt Suzuki obviously had a big 2 out, 2 RBI single, but I don’t think there’s any doubt that Hughes is our BOD. – JC
