For only the third time in his career, Delmon Young is batting third. With his hot streak during the month of June and a rest day for Twins’ catcher Joe Mauer, Young is moving up in the order as the Twins look to take the series from Detroit and remain in first place heading into a series with Tampa Bay.
Phil Miller tweets an interesting fact:
Last time DY batted above 5th: May 18, ’08, 6-2 L @ Colo. Check that lineup: Harris, DY, Monroe, Morn, Cuddy, Redmond, Clark, Everett. Whew.
