We faced the Twins who are fresh off 6 weeks rest. Sully and Latos took to the bump and the bats were steady in 8-3 and 6-2 wins. It was a skeleton crew today with 10 healthy bodies at the park.
Game 1 started with the Twins swinging it well and putting a run on the board quickly, but the boys responded with 2 in the bottom half and never looked back. The highlight was a rocket bomb off the bat of Kern for a 3 run shot, Kern also hit a triple.
Game 2 was Latos' and he was strong from the start going perfect through the first three and ending up allowing 1 hit and 2 unearned in an absolutely awesome effort on the hill.
Some other highlights today were: Dave creating a little league home run for the twins by nearly throwing the ball over the left field wall...from left field...on a throw to the cutoff man...think about it. Sull and Latos being dialed, Muge with three hits in the first game and another in the second, Roddy with a huge day at the dish when we really needed him today, Richie whiffing on a hit and run and mudry high-stepping around the tag despite the throw arriving 2 steps before him, Rich channeling his inner Robbie Alomar at 2B, and tons of other stuff, everyone contributed.
