This was a fun game, that didn't start like a fun one. Josh Reddick deposited a Scott Diamond fastball in the right field seats. The very next inning, Kila Ka'hauie did the exact same thing to bring the score to 2-0.
But, that was it for the Oakland offense. But not for Oakland pitching, Travis Blackley was looking dominant. he gave up 3 hits and one run. And that one run was a big one. Trevor Plouffe became Babe Plouffe and cranked his 5th home run of the season.
Matt Capps came in, and gave us a very adventurous inning. Alexi Casilla forgot to pick up the ball to throw out Collin Cowgill at first base, Seth Smith flew out, Jemile Weeks flew out, and Josh Reddick was walked intentionally. Capps then got Jonny Gomes to strike out on a foul tip. Twins win! 5-4!
Studs: Everyone! Great game all around!
Duds: Nobody! It's a holiday! Happy Memorial Day!
