Thanks. This is ESPN's illuminating recap:

K Seager hit sacrifice fly to left, E Chavez scored, J Jones to third.


That was true before Gardy did some managin'

Arcia's fielding makes me need a valium.

Understandable, but not many RF'ers make that catch.

It's an easier cope with a Pink Floyd light show and an Ed Nunez pinch AB. But do what you gotta do.

On a crazy aside not belonging in a game thread, the TV transition spot pretty much rips off Platoon's Adagio for Strings. Expectation adjustment, anyone?

Dozier has played in 88 of 90 games this year. I think that he should get more days off.

I think Platoon ripped off Barber's Adagio for Strings first. (Yes, I'm being a music snob. Because I can.)

And I keep thinking Suzuki can't keep this up, then he keeps this up.

Seattle may have underestimated the Twins.

Losing 3 of 4 isn't a good way to prep for the A's.

YEA! TWINS!

Welp, Perk makes it interesting by having to pitch to Cano, but: Winnah!

I think the difference in this game was we got to their bullpen before they got to ours.

I know it's splitting hairs, but does one really get to the place you start in?

My favorite difference is that we got to home plate (by way of 3rd base) more often than they did. Granted, the two are related somehow.

But yeah! Hooray for win, and all related baseball happenings.

When's the last time we took a road series in Seattle?

Sorry Chief. I took your post as a joke, but you being a Spanish American War and WWI Vet - I should have intervened and taken the burden off your shoulders. I still have a lot to learn about respecting my elders.


I looked up Mr. Chief's bio on Wiki, and wow! He's the pilot who road the A-bomb Slim Pickens-style to blow up Gettysburg to win the Spanish American War. That's studly.

I think he was part of Washington's Culper spy ring as a boy.

He was Chief Master Sergeant in the Air Force before there was an Air Force, that takes some doing.
