GameChat – Twins @ White Sox #3, 1:10pm

So we have a rubber match.

I always worry about the games following those big hitting games.. like they’ve used up all the hits in the tank for a bit.

So, let’s hope PJ has a fantastic first outing back from the DL?!?!?

That was a pretty ugly get-away day performance by the Twins. PJ Walters started things off by loading up the bases and giving up a grand slam first thing in the opening inning and things never really got better from there. Walters did survive 5+ innings but gave up all six runs. The bullpen of Alex Burnett, Brian Duensing and Jared Burton at least managed to stop the bleeding.

Ryan Doumit had a pair of doubles, but otherwise there was no appreciable offense, unless you want to count a couple of broken-bat singles from Chris Parmelee.

Off day on Thursday and we’ll hope for better on the weekend. – JC
