April 2007


Sorry I don’t have much for you today, but the Twins won 11-3 on Saturday and lost 3-4 yesterday after a walk-off homer. The Twins don’t play today to finish April with a winning record.

Mike Redmond and Joe Mauer each had 2 RBI in the 8th to propel the team past the Tigers.

Torii Hunter got smoked in the face with a pitch and Boof Bonser walked 7 batters, but the Twins endured to end their 4-game losing streak.

Sidney Ponson can’t be blamed for the loss. He allowed 4 runs through 6 innings, but costly blunders made the Twins lose their 4th straight game.

Never again will I be so optimistic about our offense. It made me sick watching a guy named Fausto Carmona (not surprisingly, Bert couldn’t pronounce it) pitch 7 and 2/3 innings. At one point, at the start of the 5th, he’d thrown just 51 pitches. This team is impatient and they hack at the ball if it’s over their heads or at their wrists, but when it’s a floater over the middle they don’t seem to hit it beyond the infield and out of the park.

Jesse Crain and Joe Nathan combined for the loss, although it officially went to Crain. Crain gave up 2 runs in the top of the 12th and Nathan came in to give up 2 that were credited to Jesse. It was a game that saw our bullpen get worked, and puts more pressure on Johan Santana to give us 7 or 8 strong innings tonight.

I’ll break the post up into two sections since I wasn’t able to do a recap of the second game of the series.
