GameChat – Twins @ Astros #2, 7:10pm

Vote for Pedro!  Pedro Hernandez takes the hill for the Twins tonight opposite Jarred Parker.  If three people show up and join us in the GameChat tonight there might be more people in the GameChat than people at Minute Maid Park.

Not a ton of Twins news to report today, but there was a brief journalist spat on Twitter regarding the story of Mark Hamburger signing with the Twins earlier this weekend.  So there’s that.

Go Twins!

That win took longer than it should have. It’s not often that Perk blows a 3 run lead in the 9th inning.

In the end, a win is a win, no matter how long it takes.

Trevor Plouffe had a home run and four hits. Josmil Pinto had four hits, too, including a key double in the 12th inning.

But I’m going to award the BOD to Darin Mastroianni, who’s double, also in the 12th inning, drove in two runs. – JC
