GameChat – Twins @ Mariners #4, 3:10pm

So the Mariners 4-game series is surprisingly 2-1 Twins so far! Who would have guessed? The worst we can do leaving Seattle is a split series which I would have taken in a heart beat if you offered me the opportunity before we started. The chance to WIN a series against a team I consider a real challenge for both pitching and hitting is pleasantly exciting.

Let’s see what Gibson can do for us today – and yay, new kids!

(putting this up early so lineups aren’t done yet – I’ll hopefully come back and give them to you before the game starts!)



Dozier, 2B Miller, B, SS
Herrmann, C, C Franklin, 2B
Morneau, DH Seager, 3B
Doumit, RF Morales, K, 1B
Colabello, 1B Ibanez, DH
Thomas, C, LF Saunders, M, LF
Plouffe, 3B Chavez, En, RF
Hicks, CF Ackley, CF
Florimon, SS Blanco, H, C
  _Gibson, P   _Ramirez, Er, P
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Minnesota 0 2 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 4 9 1
Seattle 0 0 1 4 0 0 1 0 x 6 8 0

I guess we’ll just have to settle for splitting the four-game series with the Mariners. Gibson had one bad inning, it appears. Chris Colabello notched his second home run

Brian Dozier left the game early, so I guess we’ll have to find out what that’s all about. – JC
