Twins 10 Royals 2: USA! USA! USA!

I BELIEVE THAT WE DID WIN! - Hannah Foslien

Did you SEE how many runs our team scored? Because they scored ten of them. That's a lot.

Twins starter Ricky Nolasco actually appeared serviceable for once, pitching 6 innings with one earned run to get his first quality-start as a Twin.

Ricky got major support from the Twins offense, which--even despite lacking Dozier and Willingham--provided for the Twins spectacularly. The Twins scored first on a double from Chris Parmelee in the bottom of the first. The Royals tied it up in the second, but that score didn't last long. Kendrys Morales singled to drive-in Eduardo Nunez in the third inning. The Twins led ever since.

The rest of the Twins scoring was pretty fortunate. Kendrys Morales singled to drive in Eduardo Nunez in the bottom of the third. Nunez then drove in Suzuki in the bottom of the fourth to set up a Joe Mauer RBI double to score Eduardo Escobar and Sam Fuld. (Yes, Joe Mauer had two RBIs, in ONE at-bat. Suck it!)

There were some more highlights too. Eduardo Nunez hit a home run in the bottom of the sixth. Kurt Suzuki walked in a run with the bases loaded. Sm Fuld got a Sam Fuld-y hit.

Interestingly enough, Danny Valencia came to bat in the top of the eight inning against his former team, and actually hit a double to score a run for Kansas City. It turned out to be too little. too late. however, as the Twins went on to win easily.
