If you had told me before the season started that the line up the Twins are using tonight would be something they’d be using in July, I’d have said, “that team must be in trouble.” And they are.
It looks a lot like the kind of “B” line up that Gardy has been known to trot out there for a day game after a night game. But the day game is tomorrow.
Meanwhile, the Rays swapped out their RF and their C and otherwise went with the same line up as the first game of the series.
Anyway, let’s hope Kevin Correia can get some guys out tonight. – JC

13 INNINGS OF TEASING US!!!
Actually, this was NOT a bad game of baseball – this was a pretty well duked-out pitchers duel and you know darn well we come into that gun fight with a knife. BUT the boys actually did a pretty good job at defense – Aaron Hicks was on FIRE! (and something tells me he’ll be feeling the efforts in the morning.)
Sadly, we just couldn’t hold it and they won with a walk-off in the 13th. Sad that there were hardly any fans there to see that kind of game.
