GameChat – A’s @ Twins #2, 12:10pm

STUNNINGLY beautiful day outside.. can’t wait for the continuing increase in temperatures.

There is quite a breeze though so it could be interesting to see how that effects play at Target Field. I’m pretty sure those who were able to take the time to be there won’t care about the wind though.. It’s just TIME for it to be spring in this state and every resident is going to use whatever opportunity to suck up the sunshine.

Again, the silver lining today was that the weather was absolutely the perfect reason to enjoy extra innings…

Phil Hughes had a really rough start which handed a sizeable lead over to the A’s. The good news at that point was that Phil settled in well enough to give the Twins a chance to get back into the game. Both Kubel and Dozier put points on the board with the long ball. A 9th inning collapse in the A’s pitching meant that we had everything tied up…

yeah, until Norris put one in the seats for a three runs…  The Twins even loaded the bases and brought the go-ahead run to the plate – of course, with 2 outs. Yeah, got us all worked up for the typical reward.

But like I said, it was a beautiful day to watch baseball and for those who could be there, they got a couple extra innings on top of it!
