West Coast games always kill me. Sometimes I try to watch or listen as I’m falling asleep, but last night I was totally exhausted and turned off the game when the Twins were up 12-2. Morneau, Cuddy, and Kubel had all gotten homers. Things seemed to be well in hand.
So imagine my surprise when I woke this morning to the news that the Twins had LOST the game . . . ee-gadhs!
Apparently there was a bad call at the plate near the end, but one bad call does not account for giving up a TEN-RUN-LEAD!!
and Mauer’s slump continues (last night he got a rest, coming in to PH in the eighth and getting a hit) . . . started during the series against the White Sox during which he kept swinging at the first pitch and in the final game STRUCK OUT FOUR TIMES! Come back to us old Joe . . .
