Friday’s game saw back-to-back home runs by Justin Morneau and Torii Hunter, along with another good pitching performance from Brad Radke.
Saturday’s game wasn’t as sure, with the Twins being behind 7-6 for the majority of the game. They pulled through, though, with a triple from Mike Cuddyer (with Nick Punto on second) to tie it up. Milwaukee’s closer Derrick Turnbow then proceeded to intentionally walk Morneau, for a reason that is invisible to me. Torii Hunter was then hit by a pitch to load the bases for Shannon Stewart, in his first game off the DL (who ended up going 4-4). He was walked on 4 pitches to bring in the go ahead run. Kubel came up with the bases loaded, and hit a two-run single. Joe Nathan came in for the save and the Twins won 10-7. It stopped their streak of 11 consecutive home games of giving up 3 runs or less.
Francisco “The Phenom” Liriano throws tonight, looking to sweep the Crew of Brew.
