OUCH!

Geez- We come back to take a 8-5 lead after spotting the D's a 4-0 lead, and Rincon comes in and gives up a 3-run shot in the bottom of the eighth. Not extra innings again!!

Yeah, that wasn't any fun. That D-backs team can hit though. Luckily, we decided to use up some of the clutch hitting we've been saved up early in the year. That Hunter play was just flat-out Twins baseball too. Force them to make mistakes and capitilize. 9:10 tonight on ESPN ... should be interesting.

That was some of the worst base running in MLB history.

But it was sure fun to watch. grin.gif

I thought the White Sox have been getting lucky, I'd agree and say Torri got lucky with his happy feet in the 9th inning himself!

I am glad I stuck around to watch the 9th. Sweet ending to a peculiar game!

Yeah, it was an interesting end. Nathan gave me heartburn again, but it was a pretty gutsy win for our boys.

Hunter's baserunning wasn't pretty, but I guess you can't argue with effectiveness. I'm still trying to figure out how the shortstop didn't tag him on his way back to the bag though.

i loved that play by hunter, as well the 2nd baseman moved toward to 3rd when he caught the ball and hunter just slid right underneath him, i thought it was awesome but he should have been out but ah, Twins won! Go Twins!

pikehunter...the infielder had no idea that Hunter was coming back to second base. When he caught the ball, he turned to run toward third because he thought that Hunter would be caught in the rundown. He was quite surprised when he turned and almost tripped over Hunter...

Yeah, I saw that, but I don't know how he didn't see him. Slid just in time I guess.

Good win last night ... I'm lovin Jones and Hunter batting back-to-back in the middle of the order. They seem to feed off each other there the same way they do in the field.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
