Minnesota Twins Game 145: Lineups and First Impressions


Last night’s Minnesota Twins game against the Cleveland Indians was postponed.  Due to the season coming to a quick end in a matter of weeks, a doubleheader is what the Twins find themselves playing in today.  After Trevor May got his second major league win in their last outing, the Twins will look to keep the ball rolling with Kyle Gibson.

  • Unfortunately, Ron Gardenhire has yet again removed Aaron Hicks from the lineup, we are scratching our heads too, don’t worry.
  • The Twins will stick with Kyle Gibson in game one while the Indians will instead go with Corey Kluber.
