Tonight feels like one of those games that is just going to get away from us. Hittable opposing pitcher and we're not hitting. 

It's great to get out of the cellar ... as long as you bring something with you.

Disappointing throw from Kepler after playing the ball well, off of the wall. It might have been tough to prevent the double, but a three-bouncer sealed it.
 
Buxton tracks hard hit balls extremely well. I was bothered by his catching his right ankle in the fence padding, but he untangled without drama this time. Every encounter with a fence remains an adventure. But, bottom line, he saved a run and not every CFer would have.


Buxton’s ankle almost being caught in the padding had the potential to be an uber disaster, and I don’t mean the taxi service.

... or, we keep hammering at the rock pile and finally break through to the valuable ore. :)

Pitching around Cruz to fill the bases for Rosario. That's a bold strategy, Cotton.

Maybe the Star Tribune website has a game thread. Try them. :)

Gardy has to know Rick Anderson isn't the best option out there as a pitching coach. But I do respect that he's loyal to his friends.

Double play the hard way. Walk works out for the Tigers - I don't think Kepler breaks for home if the force isn't in effect.

Too bad on the double play...

 

This team is only going to get better at home when we have 35,000 + fans cheering.  It should energize the team along with the warmer weather.
