Span out again: Twins vs. A’s 9/18

By: Kelly Thesier/

MINNEAPOLIS — A quick turnaround with a day game today for the Twins.

It’s another lefty on the mound for the A’s and Denard Span is out of the Twins lineup for a second straight day due to a sore right shoulder. Joe Mauer is the DH today after spending some time behind the plate at the end of last night’s game, meaning Jim Thome is getting the day off.

I’ll have more updates later in the Twins Beat. For now, here are the lineups:

Athletics (73-73)
Coco Crisp, CF
Daric Barton, 1B
Mark Ellis, 2B
Jack Cust, DH
Landon Powell, C
Rajai Davis, RF
Akinori Iwamura, 3B

Orlando Hudson, 2B
Joe Mauer, DH
Cuddyer, 1B
