Video: Twins manager calls for southpaw, right-hander trots in from bullpen

A pitching change didn't go so smoothly for Ron Gardenhire and the Twins Tuesday.

Gardenhire walked out to the mound and called for southpaw Brian Duensing to enter the game. However, nobody in the Twins bullpen could quite see what Gardenhire motioned for, so they sent in right-hander Casey Fien, instead. Whoops!

Fien gets all the way to the infield until Gardenhire realizes what is going on and then sends Fien right back where he came from. Duensing then makes the long job from the 'pen and all is well.

Phillies skipper Charlie Manuel took exception to the switch-a-roo for a bit before things were finally settled.

The Twins wound up winning the game, 3-2.
