GameChat – Chicago AL @ Minnesota 7:10pm

The win last night was the kind of win that reminds you why they play all nine innings. The Twins came back from an early hole, chipping away, and finally took the lead for the first time in the bottom of the 9th.  Anything even half that exciting this evening will be excellent.

Ryan Doumit is back from the DL, and to make room for him the Twins optioned Chris Colabello, who never really looked like the AAA slugger he was early in the year, back to the Minor Leagues.

Go Twins!

Nine hits seems like a pretty high number to just generate two runs. Going 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position is no way to try to win a ballgame. – JC
