GameChat – Twins @ Tigers #3, 12:08

Happy Mothers’ Day to all you moms out there!

mothersdaybaseballSam Deduno takes the mound for today’s rubber contest against the Tigers. Joe Mauer reportedly showed up today saying his back felt pretty good, so he’s at least back in the lineup for the second consecutive day at DH.

I won’t be around for the game today. I’ll be spending the day with my mom and family having dinner at a casino :)

Let’s hope Deduno makes it a terrific Mothers Day for Twins fans.

Go Twins!

I missed the entire game, so I have nothing but the box score to go on here, as far as naming a BOD.

Sam Deduno appears to have had a decent enough start. That’s great to see.

The two Eduardos, Nunez and Escobar, each had a couple of hits.

But I’m going to go with Josmil PInto as BOD for his two hits, two runs scored and a RBI.
