Twins Lose 6-5 at Home to Boston
This is becoming a roller coaster of year so far and it frightens me. The Twins are now 5-12 with last nights loss to the Red Sox. I’m starting to feel the changes they made in the off season were not the smartest.
The Twins had a 5-3 lead in the 5th after scoring 4 runs in the 4th and getting one in the 5th, but Cody Ross hit a 2-run dinger of Jason Marquis in the 7th to tie the game at 5. If that wasn’t bad enought he9th inning to take the 6-5 lead for Boston.
Ryan Doumit had a 2-run double and Danny Valencia hit a 2-run homerun for the Twins. Jason Marquis started the game and threw 6 1/3 innings with 11 hits and 5 earned runs allowed.
The Twins host the Sox again tonight at 7:10 with the pre-game on WJON at 6:40. Righthander Nick Blackburn (0-1) gets the start on the mound for the Twins and righthander Josh Beckett (1-2) toes the rubber for the Red Sox.
