Missed all of the 1st inning except the last ground out. What's up with Diamond?

He's not throwing strikes across - lot of low balls, getting behind hitters.

Thx. Unfortunately he's due for a bad outing and Dozier didn't help him there.

Have to be impressed by Diamond's composure.

That was a better inning. Maybe Diamond is getting going now.

Boy, if you looked up the word "journeyman" in the dictionary you might see Kevin Correia's picture. And yet he's got the Twins well in hand through four. Everytime we think the offense is looking OK, they make some guy seem like Cy Young.

At least Diamond doesn't open up a vein. Keeps the bleeding to a minimum.

Managed to knock out Correia. What left-handed pitcher will be coming in?

How in heaven's name does Revere not score from 2nd on a single to center? EDIT: and of course it ends up meaning the Twins don't score.

I missed it, should he have scored?

I'm on radio, not TV, but it's difficult for me to imagine holding Revere at 3rd on a clean single to CF.

The single was fairly shallow but he could have scored if he went all out. Dick-Bert mentioned something about knowing where infielders were positioned. Unfortunately I wasn't really paying enough attention to see what happened.

On Revere not scoring, I still have questions about Liddle's effectiveness at 3rd but it is so hard to tell anything on TV. I hope that one of these days some of the people who go to a lot of games will comment on what they observe from him.

A game that sped by in the first 5 innings is now definitely dragging along.
