Minnesota Twins Game 144: Lineups and First Impressions


The Minnesota Twins are coming off a four game sweep at the hands of the Los Angeles Angels.  While the Angels are one of the best teams in the baseball, the Twins could very well lose their 90th game in the next two weeks.  Tonight, they will take on the Cleveland Indians in the first of a three game series.

First Impressions:

  • Jordan Schafer leads off tonight for the Twins as Danny Santana is not in the lineup.  He has apparently mentioned having some stiffness and could be available off the bench.
  • Aaron Hicks is in center field tonight, I love it, let him keep auditioning.
  • The rest of the Twins lineup is pretty chalk.
  • Have to get a win tonight and stop the bleeding, we are approaching 90 wins way too quickly.

Game Details:

First pitch tonight from Progressive Field is scheduled for 7:05 pm central time and can be seen on Fox Sports North.  Should you want to listen to the game on the radio, catch it on the Twins Radio Network.
