Twins Player of the Game: June 11, 2011

Yesterday afternoon's big win over the Rangers had a number of big performers. Delmon Young had another three-hit game and a pair of runs batted in; Michael Cuddyer had two more hits and an RBI; Brian Dinkelman had one big hit with a bases-loaded single that scored a pair. But none of those three are up for today's vote.

Here are today's Player of the Game nominees.

Scott Baker: As mentioned in the game's recap, Baker took a perfect game into the fifth inning. The Rangers weren't able to catch up with him until the eighth, and by then it was far too little, far too late. His fastball had some wicked movement, and it shows in his final line: 9 IP, 5 H, 7 K, 0 BB, 1 R

Ben Revere: Revere had a pair of solid catches, with his diving grab in the third one of the more electrifying and acrobating catches I've seen this season. He added a pair of hits on the offensive side, as well as a stolen base, and he would come around to score on both occasions.

Alexi Casilla: Casilla's day was also impressive, with three big hits that had a direct impact on the outcome of the game. His highlight reel also includes an impressive steal of third base and a pair of runs scored.
