Minnesota Twins Game Seven: Lineups and First Impressions


If the Twins win today, that’s a winning streak. The Oakland A’s are in town for a four day, three game set to open up the Target Field season. This is the first day game for the A’s this year, while it is the seventh straight for the Twins. Both teams enter the game .500.

Jason Bartlett was put on the DL before the game, Chris Herrmann has been recalled. That moves affects the lineup with Colabello in right and Pinto DHing.

Minnesota Twins (3-3) Lineup

  1. Brian Dozier – 2B
  2. Joe Mauer – 1B

First Impressions:

  • Poor Aaron Hicks, his legs are going to be soooooo tired.
  • PINTO DHING! OUR DREAMS ARE COMING TRUE.
  • No Nick Punto. I’m sad.
  • No Coco Crisp. I’m sad for purely comedic value.
  • Scott Kazmir pitched really good in his first start, 7.1 innings of shutout ball, yeah.

Game Time:

3:10 Central from beautiful Target Field in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Seen on Fox Sports North and heard on the Twins Radio Network.

    The A’s actually played a Day/Night double header last week, so this will be the second day game… but who’s counting?
