White Sox 5, Twins 2

dammit - Hannah Foslien

Kevin Correia dug the hole, and the offense did the rest.

Let's start with the highlight of the game: Joe Mauer hit a solo jack job to stake the Twins to an early 1-0 lead.  Unfortunately, the baseball jerks make you play a full nine innings, regardless of whether or not the home team is ahead after the first inning.  You SUCK, Selig.

The White Sox immediately countered against Twins starter Kevin Correia, posting two runs in the top of the second, then adding two more runs in the third on solo dongs from Tyler Keppinger and Adam Dunn.  That would prove to be all the scoring they would need en route to a 5-2 victory.  This broke a 10-game road losing streak for the South Siders.

In Correia's limited defense, he settled the eff down afterwards and pitched into the 8th inning.  And the Twins definitely had chances to break through against Jose Quintana and the Chicago White Sox, putting multiple runners on base in the 7th and 8th inning, but only plating one run.

Highlights:

  • The Mauer dinger
  • Correia not shitting the bed to the point where an already spent bullpen was further exhausted.
  • Trevor Plouffe's throwing error that accounted for the Whities' fifth run wasn't a highlight so much as a "How soon can you get here, Miguel?" plea.
