Make it 14 straight…

Different lineups that is. The Twins will finish off their stretch of 14 consecutive games to start the ’09 season on Sunday. And so far, not a single lineup this season has been the same.

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire used Sunday to give days off to Michael Cuddyer and Joe Crede. This is the first rest of the year for Cuddyer. Brendan Harris is slotted at third in place of Crede.

The club has a chance at its first series sweep of the year today. They’ve already secured the first series win by winning the first two games.

Chone Figgins, 3B
Howie Kendrick, 2B
