Two games in one post

The internet has been extremely bad with the heat wave (the reason for lack of and late posts recently), so this is the second time I’m typing this post as the first one did not save.

I won’t dwell on Saturday night’s loss too much, because there’s a lot to cover with the win today. Brad Radke pitched just 3 innings on Sat., giving up 7 hits and 4 runs. The announcers were talking about how Brad said he isn’t feeling 100% because of his shoulder problem.

Hello boys, I’m baaack. Twins win Tribe series, take opener from ChiSox.

Thanks to Independence Day for the quote.

While I was gone, the Twins went 8-1, sweeping the Indians, and the Devil Rays, and then winning the series Sunday night against the Indians again. Monday night saw the Twins gain a game on the White Sox, and this series could be a big momentum swinger, depending on how we do. Read the rest of this entry »

Twins tie…excuse me, Tyner ties the series at 1. July 14th game

Jason Tyner, yesterday’s late night replacement for the injured Lew Ford, was the MVP in everyone’s minds of tonight’s 3-2 win against the Cleveland Indians. Read the rest of this entry »

Twins drop July 13th series opener against Tribe

Nobody is perfect. Francisco Liriano proved that today, going just 5 innings (tying a season-low) and walking 3 as the Twins fell 4-6 against Cliff Lee and the Indians. Read the rest of this entry »
