5 IP 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K. As noted by LaVelle, that's 3 walks and 23 strikeouts in 18 innings this spring.
These two developments help offset the implosion of Jeff Manship, who took a 4-0 Twins lead and Matt Capps'd it into a 6-4 defeat, being charged with all six runs, four of them earned. Jared Burton cleaned up his mess, and Kyle Waldrop closed out the game for the Twins. BULLPEN SPECULATION ENGAGE.
Sean Burroughs accounted for the Twins' other two baseball points with a 2-out, 2-run single. 25-MAN ROSTER SPECULATION ALSO ENGAGE.
The game took just over two hours to complete. Maybe we should start blaming the Red Sox for those epic, unwatchable NYY/Boston tilts.
Enjoy your weekend, everybody.
