Worth noting

Brian Duensing and Glen Perkins pitched in both games of the Twins' doubleheader on Friday, but neither threw more than two total innings, so Gardenhire is not concerned about his bullpen.

"We'll know more today when they go out there and throw [before the game]," Gardenhire said. "We should be just fine."

Duensing got the win in both games, becoming the first Twins pitcher to win twice in one day since Walter Johnson in 1923.

• Gardenhire said outfielder Josh Willingham was fine after returning from the disabled list on Friday and serving as the designated hitter in both games.

"Right now, it's just easier this way. Just let him do what he's doing," Gardenhire said. "Just getting him swings right now is more important than anything else, and running the bases. He's already played the outfield down there. I'm not too worried about that part of it."
