Pretty Even Steven ‘cept for the final score . . .
- EIGHT hits apiece
- TWO DP’s turned by each
- Good starters, stellar pens
- M’s were oh fer FOUR, yet the Twins were oh fer NINE – and they won – go figure
ON the MOUND
Mr. Young turned in another stellar start – as most would take this from their 3rd/4th starter . . .
SEVEN innings ~ SIX hits ~ TWO earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ SIX strikeouts
} Yourvis gave up an inherited runner in the 8th and Joe had to get out of a jam (couple of singles and a walk)
AT the PLATE
~ Only ONE extra base hit – LoMo’s double
~ Batters 1-6 account for all EIGHT hits
~ Batters 7, 8, 9 were 0-9 w/FOUR strikeouts
~ Maybe the most telling stat over the past few games is the lack of walks – ZERO tonight
IN the FIELD
* FOUR DP’s total and what seemed like lots of at ’em balls
* Wouldn’t ya know, Fuld would return Michael’s favor tonight
