MINNEAPOLIS -- After missing Minnesota's three-game series in Seattle to attend his daughter Tara's college graduation, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire returned to manage the club on Monday.
The Twins went 1-2 in his absence under bench coach Scott Ullger, while Gardenhire went to the graduation at Southwest Minnesota State.
"It was very nice," Gardenhire said. "It was a fun thing. It was a great event. It was a nice graduation, and she was very excited."
