Minnesota Twins Game 156: Lineups and First Impressions


It’s a rarity. The Minnesota Twins are facing off against a team that is worse than them. REJOICE!

Yes, this is a thing that is possible. I’d personally like to thank the Arizona Diamondbacks for making us all feel better about our little baseball team, so late into this forsaken season.

First Impressions

No Joe Mauer. No Brian Dozier. Really trying to win games down the stretch.

Danny Santana is at short. I shouldn’t still have to be pointing that out, but I do.

Doug Bernier. (I have nothing more to add, you can fill in the blank)

I’m not really familiar with anyone other than maybe two names on the D-Backs. That probably explains a lot.

So… how ‘bout that Ricky Nolasco signing?!

Game Time

First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 Central from beautiful Target Field in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The game can be seen on FOX Sports North and heard across the Twins Radio Network.
