Twins Get Slammed by Chicago 12-5 at Home
Just when I was thinking the Twins could take this series they lose two days in a row. What is worse is taht it was at the hands of the Chicago White SUX, my least favorite team of all time.
On the mound for the Twins was Nick Blackburn, who allowed 9 hits and 6 earned runs in 5 innings to get the loss and fall to 4-5. Jeff Manship allowed 3 earned runs in 1 inning and was sent down to triple-A Rochester after the game. His ERA is a staggering 10.97. Darin Mastroianni hit a 2-run home-run for the Twinkies and Brian Dozier went 1-3 with a solo homerun and 2 RBIs.
The Twins are now at 30-44 and have today off. They should spend some time practicing today and not playing Call Of Duty. The Twins will begin a 3-game series against K.C this Friday at 7:10, with the pregame on WJON at 6:40.
Brian Duensing (1-3) gets the nod for the Twins and Luis Mendoza (2-4) starts for the Royals.
