Miami Marlins 4 – Minnesota Twins 6
Target Field – Minneapolis, MN
June 7, 2016
I went to eleven Twins home games this year, ELEVEN, and how many did they win?
I went to three Twins away games (to be chronicled later) this year, THREE, and how many did they win?
This is not a tail set in a land far, far away, but one that is in my backyard (if you are on a tall him with clear skies and can squint hard enough). Sure, if this were the age before motor vehicles, maybe Target Field would be treated like I treat Kauffman or Wrigley, but I can go fast with my hybrid method of transportation.
I’m sorry, I am being purposely long-winded and trying to hype up something that is arguably both mundane AND rare… a Twins win in 2016. Ad me to the equation and that feat is even more rare. A win percentage below .100 is sad, but also makes for cheap tickets and possibly extra balls.
Speaking of balls…
Ball 1 – Kyle Gibson
Ball 2 – Ervin Santana
Ball 3 – Unknown Twin (HR caught on fly)
Ball 4 – Unknown Twin (HR caught on fly)
Ball 5 – Dom
Ball 6 – Kurt Suzuki (Pat Dean strike out of Derek Dietrich to end the top of 2nd)
