Wilson leads off with a double in the third and Cutch follows-up with a terrible AB buuuuuuut as I type this Morgan crushes a ball to right......HR!!!!! 2-2.

Good! Jack hits a leadoff double.....Let's go Bucs!.........umm......no way should Cutch have swung at that high fast ball.......... :?

Morgan goes long!................game tied 2-2......yes!

This Pirate team needs at least one player to show some leadership.......anyone! :)

And some emotion!!!

Maholm leaving a lot of balls up and he's not getting any luck on grounders.

Fantastic, albeit delayed, throw by Freddy to nail Kubel at the plate in the 2nd!!

It was a fine relay, but the key was McCutchen's throw to Freddy. He unloaded a strong throw very quickly, and it was right on the money.

I can't recall seeing so many balls hit back through the box. Has Minny hit anything down the lines or power alleys?

This game is a slow bleeder. It'll be 10-2 by the 8th.

This game sucked. I am glad that I had to take a call for work. We didn't score when we had the bases loaded and we made too many fielding mistakes. Hopefully we can win at least 1 in Minn. Bummer...

I just checked the 12 Days in June thread.....I predicted the Bucs would go 1-2 with the Twins

After tonight, I will be very happy with that! :?

Ugly baseball will do that.

It will be interesting to see how we adjust to that confounded turf. Balls were rocketing by the middle infielders like they were standing still. Our staff ERA would probably be about 8.37 if we had to play there half the year! Not a good place to be if you're a ground ball pitcher. The Minny batters were more than happy to oblige us on grounders. Maholm seemed to settle a bit after the first two but couldn't buy a freakin' out on a grounder. If not for the double play balls that the baseball gods mercifully rained down upon us it could have been a 20 run game for the Twins.

I was resensitized (is that a word?) to turf last night and didn't like it.

It is a very different game on turf. We should trade Nyjer to the Twins. He would have a lot more doubles and triples.
