I would like to see the Twins reverse the very recent (I have been reassured that this is NOT a season problem) trend where they can’t seem to bring the day game home.
It would be a nice change for this series – you know, the whole not being swept at home thing.. If anyone on our pitching rotation can pull it off, it is Scotty so… here’s hoping.
|Jennings, LF||Span, CF|
|Upton, B, CF||Revere, RF|
|Zobrist, RF||Mauer, C|
|Longoria, DH||Willingham, DH|
|Keppinger, 3B||Morneau, 1B|
|Pena, C, 1B||Doumit, LF|
|Roberts, R, 2B||Casilla, A, 2B|
|Rodriguez, S, SS||Dozier, SS|
|Lobaton, C||Carroll, 3B|
|Shields, P||Diamond, P|
Scott Diamond pitched well enough for 7 innings, and the bullpen brought the Twins all the way to the 10th inning before surrendering a run. Unfortunately, the Twins couldn’t capitalize on multiple base runners and scoring opportunities late in the game.
Would have been nice to avoid a sweep at home, but it wasn’t meant to be.
