Minnesota Twins Game 12: Lineups and First Impressions

Sweep! Sweep! On Sunday, the Minnesota Twins will be going for the sweep of the Kansas City Royals. Sweeps have been common in these here parts for the past three years, but it’s usually the Twins that are getting hit by the broom instead of being the sweeper. The Twins are going with the old, reliable lineup once again today.

  2. Joe Mauer 1B

First Impressions:

If it’s not broke, don’t fix it! Check.

Will Eduardo Escobar ever be freed?

Danny Valencia is on the Royals. Apparently, he plays for Kansas City the way he did for the Twins.

Billy Butler’s nickname is apparently ‘Country Breakfast’ and that’s the coolest thing ever to happen to baseball ever.

Game Time:

1:10 Central from beautiful Target Field in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Can be seen on FOX Sports North and heard on the Twins Radio Network.
