Happy 4th of July everyone! We've got some afternoon baseball coming up today, so enjoy your day off. Be safe, drink and light stuff on fire responsibly, all that stuff. Here are your nominees to this weekend's player of the game.
Francisco Liriano: 7 innings, 7 strikeouts, 2 walks and 2 runs helped Liriano lead the Twins to a Friday night win over the Brewers.
Joe Mauer: 5-for-11 in the series, with two walks and four runs scored.
Jim Thome: 2-for-7, but both hits were homers and helped him drive in four. Added a pair of walks and scored four times in the series.
Michael Cuddyer: 5-for-11 with a homer, four runs batted in, four runs scored, and a walk.
Danny Valencia: 6-for-13 with a homer, double, six runs batted in and a pair of runs scored.
That's a tough one...
