Jason Tyner has been inundated with text messages since hitting, `The Homer,’ last night. The best one came from the girlfriend of one of this teammates: “Welcome to manhood.” Ouch.
The, `Get C.C.,’ lineup is in place today. Let’s see if the Twins bunt on the big man and get him rolling around the infield. Sabathia doesn’t like the extra work, and will sometimes plunk a couple hitters in retaliation. He’s also hit Morneau a couple times.
Twins: 1. Bartlett, SS. 2. Punto, 2B. 3. Mauer, C. 4. Morneau, 1B. 5. Hunter, CF. 6. White, DH. 7. Cirillo, 3B. 8. Ford, LF. 9. Tyner, RF. Pitching: Garza.
Indians: 1. Sizemore, CF. 2. Lofton, LF. 3. Martinez, C. 4. Hafner, DH. 5. Garko, 1B. 6. Peralta, SS. 7. Nixon, RF. 8. Blake, 3B. Barfield, 2B. Pitching: Sabathia.
