Roenicke > Macha

Batting 3rd, Ryan Braun was 2-4 with 1 SB (his 29th) against the Pirates. This is the 2nd month of the season where Braun has swiped 10 bags; he also did it in May. It would appear Ron Roenicke gives Braun the green light a lot more than Ken Macha ever did.

Batting 7th, Danny Valencia was 1-4 with 1 double (his 27th) against the Orioles. That's 8 extra base hits in his last 9 games, if you're keeping track.

Batting leadoff, Ian Kinsler was 1-4 against the Red Sox.

Batting 7th, Sam Fuld was 0-2 with 2 BBs and 1 run scored against the Tigers.

Pinch hitting, Ryan Lavarnway was 0-1 against the Rangers. He put the gear on for the 1st time in his MLB career.

Michael Schwimer pitched 1 inning and gave up 1 run on 1 hit and 2 BBs against the Mets.

Valencia has been red hot for the Twins. Too bad he is always in his manager's doghouse.
