Phil Miller covered three seasons of Twins baseball, but that was at a different ballpark for a different newspaper. Now Miller returns to the baseball beat after joining the Star Tribune as the Gopher football writer in 2010, and he won't miss the dingy dome for a minute. In addition to the Twins and Gophers, Miller covered the Utah Jazz and the NBA for six years at The Salt Lake Tribune.

Nunez says he's available as Twins try to avoid sweep

Posted by: Phil Miller under MLB Updated: June 18, 2014 - 11:56 AM

    BOSTON -- Eduardo Nunez ran from first to third base a handful of times this morning, and while he said he's OK to play again, it sure didn't look like he was moving at top speed. But he apparently will escape a trip to the disabled list, though I'd be surprised if Ron Gardenhire was comfortable with putting him in the lineup for another couple of days.

    Gardenhire shook up his lineup for the series finale in Fenway Park, in part to give some of the reserves some playing time and in part in hopes of producing a run or two. Pedro Florimon gets his first start since May 7, and Danny Santana is back in the outfield. The Twins have scored just one run in Fenway during this series, and things get no easier today against John Lackey.

    Here are the lineups for the 12:35 CT start:
