The first extra-base hit didn’t come until the bottom of the 5th, and the total of them got doubled in just a few pitches when Glen Perkins gave up back-to-back homers, the first a two-run shot and the second a solo shot that ended up in just about the same spot in the left field seats.
Perkins was done after four innings in favor of Boof Bonser, who had a great month of August. But his September started horribly, giving up a walk and then a go-ahead homer to his first two batters.
Matt Guerrier would also give up a run later in the game.
All of the Twins’ nine hits were singles, but they were aided by a couple stolen bases and a wild pitch.
I don’t have any stats for the game, the internet here isn’t working properly. I believe tonight’s game starts at 6.
