The runner at second would've been safe even if Dozier didn't drop it, so just an error on the throw (in the direction of) home. Really on Santana for not just making the play at first, Torii isn't really a burner down the line at this point.

Torii would have been out by 3 or 4 steps if Santana had made the correct throw, and the inning over. That being said, I'm happy Santana is starting at SS.

Hicks is currently the best option for CF, but man he needs to go to AAA. How do pro scouts miss this badly?

Why do they let Hicks switch hit? I dont get it, he can't hit major league pitching.

He can't hit MLB pitching lefty or righty, what's the difference?

Pinto not playing again? Can we just give up on Gardy playing him, and send him to the minors?

Agreed, give up on the rebuilding farse.

Collabello needs a few days off when Mauer is back. Dude is totally lost at the plate right now.

A 1-2-3 inning from Swarzak.

Maybe we'll get to see Dozier be contrite again?

I don't think a few off days is enough

High! And Deep! To Right center field! Way back to deep second base, and Parmelee flies out to Torii

They hummed 'em pretty good, but within range of the fielders...

Now hum 'em where they ain't! And whistlin' a few is good too...

Well...

Now we gotta score 1 run per out to force extras...

A stiffer challenge than 1 every other out...

Oh well. At least it's a nice day out.

Santana took a good route on that bloop to center. Turned in the right direction, looked over his shoulder and chased it down. Hicks should be taking notes.

The ruling of FC/E-4 made all the runs against Gibson to be earned runs. Tough break for him.

Not really a tough break. An equalization of luck for a groundball pitcher who isn't keeping the ball on the ground. The dude is a gas can waiting for a match to be dropped.

Tough statistical break, but not really an excuse for giving up a 3 run HR following the error. I really don't like those kind of runs being labeled "unearned" just because the error happened with 2 out.

Eh, it's not a tough statistical break because Gibson has been playing with fire all season. He's not missing bats, hasn't been particularly good at keeping the ball on the ground recently, yet had a good ERA. One could argue that he had a few "bad breaks" coming because he was a lot worse than his numbers indicated.
