    Bases were loaded with one out, ball hits the runner on second right in front of Escobar.

    Probably a dead ball at that point, and umps decision as to what happens. Escobar then picked up the ball and flipped to Dozier covering second. And it was hard enough they'd likely gotten the batter at first. Anyway, at least they didn't say the runner on third should score, and they got another ground ball immediately to end the inning.

    Oh well. Maybe it'll spark a rally?

    Deduno has hung too many curveballs today. That one to Kinsler was placed on a tee.

    Deduno strikes out Miggy and V-Mart. One more inning for Sam?

    He's hit the ball harder than Kubel has lately, but has even less to show for it..

    Well, that was the last hit he gave up. The last six batters Deduno faced made outs, four on strikes. Way to finish out your outing, Sammy.

    Well, if that is all for Deduno, he finished with a flourish.

    Unfortunately that's my impression of him in general. Which made it ridiculous to bring him in as a reliever with men on base, but even when starting his day (in relief or as a starter) it takes him too long to find some command. He always ends his stint leaving you with the feeling you should give him another chance; and then next time it's the same thing again.

    I am so tired of Collabello playing every day. He's clearly overmatched, and the Twins have decided that the #4 hitter in a lineup should be determined by "who had the best hot streak 3+ weeks ago?"

    Pretty much agree, but the options are really limited. I think, for now, Mauer needs to hit #3 (move Plouffe down), but I really don't know who should bat #4.

    I don't care if there is no backup. You have to hit for Hicks here, right?

    I'd like to have seen that too...

    But oh well... Sometimes ya esco the bar, and sometimes, well...

    Anyway 1-3. There's still hope, i think. And now we can see him fielding. And hopefully we'll see both of them catch.
