Game 1: Twins at Tigers 9/29

Everyone is back at Comerica Park and ready to try this again. It’s been relatively dry this morning and the hope is that it stays that way long enough to get in both games.

The Twins lineup is exactly the same as Monday night. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said he arrived at the ballpark and just hit print again on his computer.

The only change for the Tigers was that they had Magglio Ordonez in right field when the
lineup was posted Monday, but now Clete Thomas is in right field. The guess is it’s because Ordonez will likely only play one game today.
