9th Inning FG can't put Sox over the hump

16 posts in this topic

Despite missing an extra point in the 3rd inning the Twins managed to pull out a 20-14 win this afternoon. Are you kidding me? I bet the Vikes and Bears don't score that many in each of their games this season.

Was that some truly pathetic pitching today? 39 hits? I was waiting for Ozzie and Gardy to pitch an inning. It couldn't have been any worse. And five errors for the Sox. When's the last time a team had 18 hits, and were never really in the game? If that wasn't their worst game in decades, it had to be right up there.

Tonights game was one sided as Morneau's 3 homers led the way.

Fins,

Are you kidding me? One Sided? The score was 20-14!!! I wonder what the Twinks record would be for the year if they gave up 14 runs every game. One Sided? Spinner would be more on the right track with pathetic. I don't know of too many Twink fans who would sleep tight knowing that their pitchers were going to give up two touchdowns every game.I think some of your compadres out there can come up with some better words than one sided. OK guys....Fire Away!

That was a serious two-game beat down. But that is going to be hard on the Twins with Redmond hurt and Mauer needing a day off tomorrow...I wonder if Redmond will try to play, or if the Twins will make a roster move...

Most people would consider 12-0 a one sided game. The afternoon game could be called "pathetic', or "disgusting", or "slugfest" , or just "poor pitching", or in the W.S. case "poor defense", take your pick! Whichever you choose, it is 2 wins for the MINNESOTA TWINS! smile.gif

I believe Fins was referring to the nightcap 12-0 game.

the key was "tonight's game".- at least for those with a 2nd grade level of english and above. still 32-14 in runs scored for the day, and 12-0 in one game = big time beating.

windy- at least the cubs lost-- and I mean on friday for correct grammar for those lacking in that field.

Yes, now game two was a beat down. Although a W is a W in the standings, I couldn't enjoy game one when the Twins struggled to hold a ridiculous lead. That looked like a Reds-Nats pitching performance, not a contending team. But on the bright side, Garza is certainly showing improvement.

Well that had to be the most "one sided" series split I have ever seen. Funny game, that baseball game!

that is a good way to put it. man, what a weird series. Entertaining however. I do like games like these once in ahwile. i get sick of 1-0 and 2-1 games in a hurry.

by the way, what has happened to Jermaine Dye?

Not sure Dawg,

Some people think he might be on the trading block. Some people think he is doggin it after he signed his deal. I have never been a huge Dye fan but he was hot in 05!

One sided series? winning 6-3 and 3-1 is no way close to winning 12-0 and 20-14 even though they split the low point of the season for the Sox's has got to be two back to back snack downs within hours of each other. The 20-14 game as I saw it was the Twins just putting runs on the board when they needed them almost like a church softball game.. Only thing good about the Sox's is Ozzie

Bobby,

That's why I put the post in, are you reading the words. I think it is funny that a team can get beat down so bad in a 4 game series and walk out of it with exactly the same number of wins and losses as the team doing the beating. Hence, my comment of baseball being a funny game.

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
