The red "blankies" were inscribed with Hideki Matsui's name and uniform No. 55. A Guinness World Records adjudicator was on hand to officially certify the new record, which shattered the previous mark of 17,758 fans that was just set on March 5 by the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers.
NOTES: A moment of silence was observed in memory of Bob Clear, the Angels' bullpen coach during their 1979, 1982 and 1986 AL West championship seasons, who died Tuesday at age 82. ... Gardenhire left the ballpark before the game ended because of flulike symptons, and was replaced by third base coach Scott Ullger. ... Mauer and Morneau homered in the same game six times last season -- all in May -- and the Twins were 4-2 on those occasions. ... Mauer was hitless in his first eight career at-bats against Saunders before the home run. ... Bert Blyleven, in his 15th season as a TV analyst for the Twins, turned 59 years old Tuesday. He is one of three pitchers in history to win a big league game before his 20th birthday and after his 40th birthday, along with Mike Morgan and Herb Pennock. Anaheim was the site of Blyleven's only no-hitter, a 6-0 victory over the Angels in 1977 while pitching for the Texas Rangers. ... Hunter is one of four players who spent at least 10 seasons with the Twins and then went straight to the Angels. The others were Bert Blyleven (trade) Rod Carew (trade) and Gary Gaetti (free agency).
