Open Thread: Game 53 - A's vs. Twins

New, 376 comments

The Minnesota Twins probably don't believe that Mark Kotsay was ever gone. Kotsay was racing around the bases hitting inside-the-park HRs the last time these two teams met, and he's in the lineup tonight.

The A's send Joe Kennedy to the mound, hoping Kennedy can bounce back from his first poor outing of the season when he was knocked around by the Orioles. His opponent is a guy named after Bengie Molina: Kevin Slowey, who will making his major league debut.

The lineups (featuring "The Killer C's" for Minnesota):

Castillo
Cerillo
Cuddyer
Morneau
Hunter
Redmond
Ford
Punto
Bartlett

Buck
Swisher
Bradley
Johnson
Chavez
Crosby
Kotsay
Scutaro
Kendall
