Player of the Game: June 15, 2011

It's tough to get better than a win against the White Sox. Oh, those wins happen. Game 163 in 2009 for example, or the theoretically possible win over the Yankees in the playoffs. But last night's win was pretty good in its own right.

Here are yesterday's Player of the Game nominees.

Carl Pavano: A complete game, one-run effort? That'll get you a big fat W on most occasions and it was certainly enough for the Twins last night. Pavano walked three, but he struck out five and scattered six hits. He collected 27 outs on just 96 pitches. He has now accumulated 1.3 wins above replacement.

Ben Revere: Two hits, a run scored, a stolen base, and part of a back-to-back double combo that gave the Twins an early lead.

Alexi Casilla: Two hits, a run scored, a stolen base, and part of a back-to-back double combo that gave the Twins an early lead.

Delmon Young: A big two-run single.

Michael Cuddyer: Two hits, a walk, AND THREE STOLEN BASES.
