Kevin Correia pitched a great game for the Twins today, giving up 0 runs on 6 hits overs 7 innings pitched--but it wasn't enough for a Twins win. Jared Burton came in to pitch in the top of the 8th inning and was pulled after only achieving 1 out (and 4 earned runs). One of those nights.
The Royals broke the game open in the top of the 8th with a short fly ball to right field (!), a suicide squeeze (!!), and a bunt (!!!). Who do the Royals think they are? The Twins?
The Twinkers came back against Kansas City with a whimper in the bottom of the 8th inning, when Brian Dozier hit an "it's just too hot to care about that ball" RBI double. Unfortunately, that's all the Twins would muster for the night (because it's just too dang HOT!).
DANG IT. IT'S HOT!
Maybe Correia. But it's too hot.
Too dang hot.
It's too dang hot for roll call.
