Phil Miller is covering today's game, but I got here first and was pleasantly surprised to see that the lineup sheet is out.

A couple quick notes:

With one more stolen base, Brian Dozier will become the sixth Twin to have a 20-20 season. Larry Hisle, Kirby Puckett, Marty Cordova, Corey Koskie and Torii Hunter (twice) are the others.

Michael Brantley is batting .342 with a .901 OPS against the Twins this season.
