Minnesota Twins Game 145: Lineups and First Impressions


Fresh off Trevor May winning his second big league game, the Minnesota Twins will be looking to knock off the Cleveland Indians for a second straight night.  Minnesota is trying to stave off the 90 loss plateau as long as they can, and it will take a strong September to continue to do so.

First Impressions:

  • Danny Santana is still out of the lineup tonight, however, the Twins will also sit Jordan Schafer.
  • Brian Dozier moves back into the leadoff spot, and despite the power he displayed earlier in the season, he is no longer considered a power hitter in the leadoff hole.
  • The Twins will give Parmelee some playing tonight having him man left field.
  • Will the Twins make it a streak and win two in a row?

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.
