Twins Player of the Game: "Oh Yeah, We're Doing This!" Edition

With all the losing that's been going on lately, the fact that we're doing this has slipped my mind a little bit. But that's no excuse for us to not celebrate when we have the opportunity! And after a nice win over the White Sox last night, this is one of those (increasingly rare) chances.

Here are last night's contenders for Player of the Game.

Ben Revere: Revere went 2-for-4 on the evening with a stolen base (his 26th and first since August 28th) and a run scored (his 48th in 99 games this season).

Luke Hughes: Hughes had another big day for the Twins, going 2-for-3 with a walk, double, run scored and a stolen base. He's now played in 81 games this year, and in spite of some inconsistency shows flashes of a player who could be a decent contributor off the bench next season. Oh yeah, he had a nice diving play at second tonight, too.

Danny Valencia: His two-run double put the Twins up 2-0. It was his only hit of the game, but it was in a big situation and gave a kick start to a Minnesota offense that sorely needed it.

Chris Parmelee: Parmelee, later in the four-run third, smashed a line drive double over Alex Rios' head in center field. His first extra-base hit of his big league career scored two more runs, giving the Twins a 4-0 lead.

Jose Mijares: I could include a couple of relievers on this list, but nobody's out was bigger that Jose's. With one out and runners on second and third, Alex Burnett picked up a big second out before intentionally walking Paul Konerko. With the lead trimmed to 4-3 and the bases loaded with two away, Gardy went to Mijares to get A.J. Pierzynski. Mijares did his job, got his one out, and was done for the evening. But it was a big out.
