In his heart, Douglas knew that his owner meant well when she dressed him in the rain suit.

Top of 7th Inning Report

Marisnick strikes out swinging.

Castro lines out to 3rd.

Kemp doubles to deep right.

Springer singles, Kemp to 3rd.

Bregman flies out to center.

 

Bottom of 7th

Dozier singles.

Grossman strikes out.

(Jandel Gustave pitching)

Sano strikes out.

Dozier steals 2nd.

Plouffe singles. Dozier scores on errored throw home by Kemp, Plouffe to 2nd. (MIN 7-0)

Let's see if Santana can go all 9 innings. He's got 10 Ks so far.

So tomorrow the game will start in the top of the 3rd with one out..... To bad for Santana, as he could have gotten a much deserved win tonight.  Maybe Millone can get one tomorrow, being handed a 5-0 lead.

They didn't get to five innings. The game will start over with everyone's stats for the night erased.

What a dumb rule..  Why can't it just continue?  Lame.  Oh well.

Top of the 8th Report

Altuve grounds out (6-3).

Correa walks.

Gonzalez triples, scoring Correa (MIN 7-1).

Tucker flies out to deep right, Gonzalez scores (MIN 7-2).

Marisnick strikes out swinging.

 

Bottom of the 8th

Polanco grounds out (6-3).

Escobar strikes out looking.

Suzuki singles.

Rosario walks.

Grossman walks. Bases are loaded.

Sano walks, scoring Suzuki (MIN 8-2).

Plouffe grounds out (6U).

 

There goes Santana's shutout. An 8 inning outing is still nothing to sneer at.

Pretty sure this rule is like a few others in that its origin can probably be traced to careful calculations to determine the play resumption regulations that would ultimately lead to the sale of the most beer.

Final Strat-o-matic Report - Top of the 9th

(Taylor Rogers pitching, Joe Mauer at 1st, Danny Santana at LF.)

(Evan Gattis pinch hits for Castro.)

Gattis grounds out (1-3).

Kemp strikes out looking.

Springer singles to left. He advances to 2B on defensive indifference.

Bregman flies out to center.

 

Congrats, Twins! They defeated the Astros 8-2. Too bad we didn't see a win or a loss from today's real game.

 

Thanks for sticking with me so late! I'll see if I can have another game thread and host another Strat-o-Matic baseball game.

Yeah, but there is a silver lining. It's nice to see the Twins being penalized by this rule for a change instead of actively cheering on the rain to erase their deficit...

Not good enough excuses pal.

There is only one thing that cap should be used for, and just once.

You read me?

I'm sure the sale of the most tickets is factored in (which directly leads to the sale of the most beer).How many people are going to buy tickets for a game (or trade in rain checks for a game) that's already 5-0?

Man, this sucks. The team lights up Keuchel for five runs in two innings and the slate is wiped clean because of rain.

 

I'm not saying it's wrong or a bad ruling but it sucks hard.
