The Minnesota Twins enter play on Friday just a half game behind the Detroit Tigers for FIRST PLACE in the American League Central. If you claim to know that was going to be true 15 games into the season, I will call you a lie-telling mongrel straight to your pretty face.
The Twins are in Kansas City for weekend three game set against the Royals. The season series is all Twins after sweeping the Royals last weekend at Target Field.
Minnesota Twins (8-7) Lineup
Brian Dozier 2B
Joe Mauer 1B
Josmil Pinto DH
Aaron Hicks CF
Kansas City Royals (7-7) Lineup
Norichika Aoki RF
Omar Infante 2B
Eric Hosmer 1B
Alex Gordon LF
Billy Butler DH
- No Kubs! Jason Kubel is not in the lineup tonight. Mastroianni is taking his place in left field.
- The Royals are 4-2 at home so far in 2014, let’s see how that holds up.
- Danny Valencia got some playing time this week, but not in the lineup tonight against his former team.
- Billy Butler has moved down in the order, the once cleanup man is now down to sixth.
First pitch is at 7:10 from Kauffman Stadium in the City of Fountains, Kansas City, Missouri.
Can be seen on FOX Sports North and heard on the Twins Radio Network.
