|12:33 am - Damn! That's some baseball!|
For the second night in a row the scrappy Twins pulled one out over the White Sox. When the Sox were in town last week their manager dubbed certain members of the Twins "piranas," the little guys at either end of our line-up just seem to get things done one way or another and end up helping win us games.
And you know, if they have an off night ... well then one of the big guys in the middle (or two or three) pull out their boom sticks and remind you why you have to pay attention to them as well.
After a supremely crappy start to the season the Twins now lead the wild card race by a game and a half and are a mere four games behind the Tigers. It is going to be an exciting September!
Current Mood: excited
Which is nice, since my Red Sox are in the tank. The Yankees are even losing right now, and we suck. I'm SO glad I was in Italy and France for the 5 game sweep.
Last night was so huge, the kind of game that propels you forward. We lose last night, then Carlos Silva probably gives up 18,000 runs in the first two innings. Winning, he might pitch 6 and give up only 4, which we can handle.

I felt your pain during that Red Sox/Yankees series.
Yeah, without the pressure to win the series we'll probably get the decent version of Silva today. I wouldn't be surprised if he did better than your prediction but I also am not counting on it.
Infield defense let him down. Oh well. Good series anyway.
