It's hard to believe that 1 inning and 45 minutes ago this was a cleanly-played pitchers' duel.

Wow. We apparently don't need to get any hits to mount a comeback.

I gotta give some credit to Brunansky. These batters are patient and taking walks. Good job so far!

Disagree. He's slow as molasses and never had a chance from there. The only bunt he had a chance on was a swinging bunt.

I thought that maybe Plouffe was trying to hold third for the force play momentarily. The ball was pretty close to the mound, but Correia falls off to the first base side.

Only the Twins would reap so little out of such a plethora of gifts.

Spoiler alert for those planning on watching the Masters after the ball game: Tiger doesn't win it this year.

Why did we run for Kubel again?


For Montgomery it was A Bridge Too Far, for Gardy, it's always a bridge too soon.

Pinto's defensive liability really showed through more in that at bat than in his home run one.

On a less snarky note, what a crap third strike call.

No, Perkins can save you 15% in 15 minutes.
