2012 Day-by-Day - April 18

Rate this Entry
Twins do it again in New York. Win 2 of the first 3 guaranteeing at least a split against the Yankees in the Bronx. Marquis struggled early on, understandably with his emotions of 1st game back after his daughter's bike accident, first game as a Twins and first start in New York, his boyhood team. Thankfully the bats were alive early and got him the lead. He held them in the 1st thanks to a double play, and they continued to stay in the game, but never got the big hit to take the lead. Capps made it interesting in the 9th, but Twins pull it out to win 6-4. Morneau hits 2 bombs, Willingham extends his hitting streak to 12 with a double in the 9th, but the unsung hero of the game had to be Jared Burton. With Perkins in New York, but unavailable, Burton steps into the 8th (and 3rd out of the 7th) guy going 1 1/3 IP 0 hits, 0 walks and 2 strikeouts. Good 1-2 punch with fastball and changeup/splitter. He is a very important team to the bullpen and thus the team's success.

Down on the farm Rochester and New Britain both lose pitcher duels, 2-0. Fort Myers had a day off and Beloit, behind Rosario this game, wins 6-3 to get over .500 for the first time in 2012.

Here is today's recap:
