Chris Herrmann

Twins rookie catcher Chris Herrmann banged out three hits in Minnesota’s 7-6 win at Detroit, including a run-scoring double which snapped a 6-6 tie in the eighth inning. It was the third three-hit game of the season for Herrmann, all of which have come in games in which he was behind the plate. That ties him with the Marlins’ Rob Brantly for the most games of three or more hits by a rookie catcher this season. Since 1986, the only other rookie catcher to record as many three-hit games in one season for the Twins as Herrmann was Joe Mauer with three in 2004.
