Will be back with updates.

UPDATES:Jack Jablonski was to throw out the first pitch at tonight's game, but his family just announced on his twitter feed that he won't be able to attend tonight's game."Very sad to announce that Jack is not feeling well, and the family will be unable to attend the twins game tonight."

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine thought that Twins pitcher Liam Hendriks was a lefthander and had a totally different lineup prepared. Around 3:45, after Bobby V. realized that Hendriks was a righthander, a new lineup was posted in the clubhouse.

Ben Revere said he was told he could be here three days or for the rest of the season. "You really have to keep fighting," Revere said. "We're struggling now, but there are so many games left."

Glen Perkins and Jared Burton are definitely available out of the bullpen tonight if needed.

Gardy said that Josh Willingham's wife, Ginger, had a baby boy today. We're waiting for measurements.

Sean Burroughs gets the start tonight, as Danny Valencia gets a break. "He's fine,'' Gardy said of Burroughs. :"He catches the ball. Danny is moving a lot better and doing a lot better. He's working real hard.  Sean knows how to play over there, also. The times I have put him out there he's moved around just fine. Anticipates, knows the guys who bunt."
