Good to see Terry Doyle get the start today in Tampa for the Twins. I like that he's starting in that he'll see more big league hitters. The Twins have (obviously) a big decision to make on him and it'll be good to see him against good hitters. Hopefully he steps up.

Doyle hit Sean Rodriguez. Rays announcers say it happens a lot. Joyce got another grounder to 1B for a force out at 2B.

Are you listening? Parmelee barely got hit. It took a minute to realize it hit him. That wasn't a purpose pitch in any way.

Solid Twins debut for Terry Doyle. Three ground ball outs to 1B, a fly out to RF, a strikeout. He hit Sean Rodriguez with a pitch. The lone negative was the 2-out, 2nd inning walk to Jeff Salazar. Came back to get a pop up to shallow right. Two innings, no hit, no runs, 1 BB, 1 K. 1 HBP.

Trevor Plouffe lined to RF for an RBI single to give the Twins a 1-0 lead.

Scott Diamond in for the 3rd inning. Got the first out, then gave up a single. Then gave up another single, but Brian Dinkelman threw out the runner trying to go to 3rd base. However, Matt Joyce singled in a run. Diamond gave up one run on three hits in the third inning.

Perdomo in now. Let's see how he does
03-04-2012, 01:19 PM #16
Perdomo strikes out the first batter on three straight called strikes. But Jeff Salazar took his first pitch and blasted a home run.
03-04-2012, 01:21 PM #17
Perdomo came back with a strikeout of Tim Beckham and a ground out back to himself. Not too shabby.
03-04-2012, 01:23 PM #18
Perdomo 2K a GO and a solo HR
03-04-2012, 01:40 PM #19
PJ Walters got out of some trouble with a nice 4-6-3 double play.

Chris Parmelee with a two-run homer off Burke Badenhop. It scored Matt Carson who was pinch-running for Trevor Plouffe. Plouffe had singled and went 2-3 on his day.
