GameChat – Twins @ Mets #2, 12:10 PM

This team needs a break out game to shake this slump. It won’t be easy against old friend Johan Santana, but let’s get it done anyway!

Minnesota 4 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 6 10 0
NY Mets 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 0


There hasn’t been a whole lot to get excited about during this interleague road trip, but you have to give credit to Carl Pavano for matching up with Roy Halladay and Johan Santana and coming away with a couple of wins. Baked goods to the four guys who each doubled in the first inning, to stake Pavano to a 4-0 lead (Hudson, Mauer, Kubel and Young), but there can be no Boyfriend of the Day but Carl “the Stache” Pavano.
