Gardenhire to skip Seattle series for graduation
ANAHEIM -- Twins manager Ron Gardenhire will miss the club's three-game series against the Mariners in Seattle this weekend to attend his daughter Tara's graduation from Southwest Minnesota State.

Bench coach Scott Ullger will serve as manager in his absence, as Gardenhire will return in time for Minnesota's game against the Angels on May 7 at Target Field.

Ullger has served as manager in Gardenhire's absence in three different stints with a career 7-4 record as Twins manager. Ullger also had a career 567-433 record (.567) as a Minor League manager.
