The Twins have been swept, now, in a series where they gave up just 9 runs. Though this game probably should have been a blowout.
Kyle Gibson started out looking like the Bad Gibby as he gave up a walk, single, and then hit Yoenis Cespedes to load the bases. Michael Conforto singled, scoring two runs, and then Kelly Johnson walked to fill the bases yet again.
At this point the game was looking pretty "over." However, Brian Dozier Superstar snagged a line drive off the bat of Travis d'Arnaud and stepped on second for a
lucky clutch double play. Lucas Duda grounded out to end the threat.
A sacrifice fly by John Ryan Bob Joe Walker Murphy gave the Twins their first run of the game in the 2nd. Yay for productive outs! That made the score 2-1, Mets.
The Mets answered that run with a solo-homer in the 3rd by T.J Rivera. Other than that, though, Gibson was ok today, except for that 1st inning and the sixth inning which I'm about to talk about.
In the 6th, the Mets loaded the bases again against Gibby, which ended his day. Enter Buddy "My Buddy" Boshers. Buddy forced a flyout from Asdrubal Cabrera, and then a double play from Matt Reynolds to end the inning unscathed.
The last run scored in this game was a solo dong (MLB.com calls it "mammoth") from Kennys Vargas, making the score 3-2, Mets. Which, in case you missed it, is our final score. There's no embed link of that but here is just a generic link.
Kennys Vargas (mammoth dong), Buddy Boshers (magician), Robbie Grossman (4-4, 4 Singles).
No one was exceptionally dud-tastic today. Consider this one of those moral victories.
