Span had a nice day at the plate yesterday, and added an outfield assist. But he doesn't get a shot at Player of the Game.

With the Twins getting back on track with a win against the Royals, the weekend ended on a high note! As in every victory and every defeat it's impossible to place all the credit or blame onto one individual. But this is not a philosophical discussion on the lack of 'I' in team. No, my friends, this is quite simply casting a vote for who you believe deserves the honors of Player of the Game.

Josh Willingham: As of today, all Twins players must institute a rotation of having babies. And then returning to the field. Because apparently having a baby is good luck. Willingham smashed the ball around the park yesterday afternoon, picking up a triple, double and single while driving in a pair of runs. His triple in the first scored both of his runs batted in and helped give the Twins a big first inning.

Danny Valencia: The other three-hit day came off the bat of Danny V. He marked Minnesota's second triple of the afternoon in the third inning, plating Willingham, but he also singled to score the final run of that big first inning. That makes him responsible for driving in the fourth and fifth runs of the game. Valencia also initiated a 5-4-3 double play to end the seventh inning.
