GameChat – Rays @ Twins #3, 1:10pm

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.

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.
