GameChat – Twins @ Tigers #3, 12:05pm

For those of you are are still planning to watch baseball instead of football today, you will be treated to Gardy’s version of getaway day lineups when … pretty much every other lineup is already like that. Let’s hope that Scott Diamond has something to work with today. Since I’m a Vikings fan too, I will get to see TWO major underdogs hit the turf today. Could be interesting.




Repko, RF Jackson, A, CF
Plouffe, SS Ordonez, RF

  Diamond, P   Fister, P
  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Minnesota 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 4 1
Detroit 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 x 2 9 0

At least it wasn’t a shutout. Not much offense to write about, but after a slow start, Scott Diamond did a nice job and Jim Hoey threw two shutout innings. Chris Parmelee flashed a little leather, too. In the end, though, another loss and another sweep. Then again, the Red Wings lost 90+ games in AAA, so it’s not surprising they’re struggling to win in the AL, too. – JC
