Michael Cuddyer moved from right field to the mound to pitch the eighth for the Twins last night. Cuddyer gave up a double to Napoli, a bloop single to Mitch Moreland, and walked Kinsler with one out to load the bases. He did get out of the inning after retiring Elvis Andrus on a fly ball and David Murphy on a pop-up for a scoreless inning.
The last Twins position player to pitch was outfielder John Moses against California on July 31, 1990. Moses actually pitched twice in 1990, each time in a loss.
Twins position players who pitched: Julio Becquer (10 Sept 1961), César Tovar, Dan Gladden (27 June 1988 and 7 May 1989, both Fred Toliver losses), John Moses, and now Cuddyer.
