It’s a great day to play two. Okay, it might be a little gloomy, but there’s always something a little special in the air when there’s a doubleheader, even if it is a split day-night doubleheader and thus a total money grab by the franchise. I’ll step off my soap box now and just give you the lineups.
Minnesota Twins (6-7) Lineup
Brian Dozier 2B
Joe Mauer 1B
Jason Kubel LF
Josmil Pinto DH
Aaron Hicks CF
Toronto Blue Jays (8-6) Lineup
Colby Rasmus DH
Brett Lawrie 3B
Ryan Goins SS
Remember when R.A. Dickey was on the Twins? He’s fairly good now. (I thought he was then too, but what do I know)
Who catches tonight?! Do we see a Chris Herrmann outing with Pinto still DHing?!
The Blue Jays still have Jose Bautista playing centerfield. That’s weird.
First pitch for the first game of the split doubleheader is 12:10 from beautiful Target Field in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Can be seen on FOX Sports North and heard on the Twins Radio Network.
REMINDER: Tonight’s game will be on the FSN Plus channel, you’ve be warned.
