Minnesota Twins Game 126: Lineups and First Impressions


Tonight the Minnesota Twins welcome the Detroit Tigers to Target field for the first of four games over the next three days.  The Twins will play a doubleheader against Detroit tomorrow at Target Field to make up for a rainout back in April.  Minnesota dropped the series to the Cleveland Indians and will look to snag a few wins against the Tigers.

Tonight on the mound, the Twins will send Tommy Milone to the mound tonight and he will be opposed by rookie Robbie Ray for the Tigers.

Here is how both team will look tonight:

Detroit Tigers (68-57)

Ian Kinsler 2B

Torii Hunter RF

Miguel Cabrera 1B

Victor Martinez DH

J.D. Martinez LF

Nick Castellanos 3B

Eugenio Suarez SS

Bryan Holaday C

Rajai Davis CF

  • Robbie Ray P

Minnesota Twins (55-70)

Danny Santana CF

Brian Dozier 2B

Joe Mauer 1B

Kennys Vargas DH

Oswaldo Arcia RF

Trevor Plouffe 3B

Kurt Suzuki C

Eduardo Escobar SS

Jordan Schafer LF

  • Tommy Milone P

First Impressions:

  • The Twins send out the same exact lineup as last night with the substitution of Kurt Suzuki in the place of Eric Fryer at catcher.
  • Hopefully Tommy Milone can turn the corner and make his last outing look like a mirage or a misstep, while he is not a frontline starter, that can’t be assumed to be par for the course either.
  • The Tigers send out one of the best lineups in the AL Central, tonight, and the series as a whole will be a tough test for the entirety of the Twins pitching staff.

Game Details:

First pitch tonight is scheduled for 7:10 pm central time from Target Field.  The game can be seen on Fox Sports North or heard on the Twins Radio Network.
