It's the birthday of 26-year major league pitcher and 1994 Minnesota Twins broadcaster Tommy John, born in Terre Haute, Indiana in 1943. Consider this: with 21 major league seasons under his belt, LaTroy Hawkins is only the fourth-longest-tenured pitcher to share the booth with Dick Bremer.

Michael Cuddyer Hits for the Cycle


The day after snapping a six-game losing streak with a 20-1 road win versus the White Sox, the Twins returned home to the Dome, beating the Brewers 11-3. The Twins had outscored their opponents by 27 runs over the past two days. Michael Cuddyer, who had four hits the previous day in Chicago, hit for the cycle versus the Brewers, going 4-for-5 with five RBI and two runs scored, making him 8-for-11 with eight RBI and six runs over the past two days. He hit a three-run home run in the first inning, driving in Mauer and Morneau. Cuddy completed the cycle with an RBI triple to left, driving in Morneau, putting the Twins up 11-1. Cuddyer grounded out in his final at-bat. No Twin has hit for the cycle since.
