What the fuck just happened???
The Yanks get 5 innings of 1-run ball from Mitre, D-Rob manages to keep the ball in the yard for 2 innings and then in the 8th Joba and Mo completely shit the bed to cough up a 3-1 lead and transform it into a 6-3 deficit? Is that even real life? 1 IP, 3 H, 2 BB, 5 ER, and a grand slam given up by Mo; was that really him and Joba out there or Paul Quantrill and Jose Veras in disguise?
You hate to lose a game like that, especially when you get a good start from your 6th starter and the majority of your offensive production came from Randy Winn and Ramiro Pena today. But if it takes an act of the darkest black magic that causes Joba and Mo to bomb that badly to allow the Twins to finally win a game against the Yanks, then I guess that's not so bad. At least Minny has a little something to hang their hat on on the flight home.
P.S.- The top of the order striking out to end the game after Winn and Pena get on base to lead off the bottom of the 9th is like getting kicked in the balls.
** Updated stats coming later tonight. I have a Brewers game to go to. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know it's lame, but they're box seats and it gives me an opportunity to wear all my Yankee World Series gear out to another ballpark again. I'm jumping at that chance 25 hours a day, 8 days a week.**
