Twins Player of the Game: July 8, 2011

Good game by Nishioka last night, but he doesn't make the cutoff for the voting today.

There isn't much better in baseball than beating the White Sox in Chicago. Unless it's beating them at Target Field. I suppose beating the Yankees in the playoffs might be better, but it's been so long I can't remember what that feels like. Anyway: positivity. Here are your nominees for last night's Player of the Game.

Carl Pavano: Make no mistake, the White Sox have an offense that can score some runs, even if some of their players are suffering from the same virus as a few Twins hitters, commonly known as assbatitis. But Pavano was good, allowing six hits and just two runs over seven innings of work. It's easier to pitch with a 6-0 lead, but you still have to get it done.

Joe Mauer: Playing out of position and playing that position well, while collecting a trio of hits and a pair of runs batted in. Yeah, I think that'll get the job done.

Ben Revere: Another big game for Revere, as the other Twins batter to collect three hits in the game. He drove in two runs as well, and picked up a stolen base. We can overlook the one where Pierzynski threw him out.
