Tonight’s game was really fun to watch, but it was the type of game that I’m unsure how to make sound interesting. That type of game is a low scoring pitcher’s duel. I will get to say “dong” one more time in this recap, and there was indeed a walk that haunted. The recap tics are there, so we can all feel safe and comfortable in the Tawny-recap-zone.
Ervin Santana pitched even better than he normally pitches, going all 9 innings and allowing absolutely no runs. The shutout came with 6 strikeouts, 2 walks and only 2 hits (both singles.) The man has successfully transitioned from “Twins ace” to “HELL YEAH ACE.”
The Twins managed 2 runs on 6 hits, and this is how they managed them:
Jorge Polanco led off the 5th with a walk. Then, wait hold on. Hold on! Let me go spend an unwarranted amount of time on a shitty and obtrusive animated gif.
Okay thanks, I’m back. Anyway, Jason Castro singled him over to third, and then Byron Buxton came to the plate and whooops
Buxton delivered with a single of his own. 1-0 Twinkles.
In the 7th Brian Dozier would Dozier-Dong a ball over the left-field fence for his 6th of the year. That would be it for the scoring.
Ervin Santana nabbed his 7th win while bringing his ERA down to a nifty 1.80, while the Twins rise to 24-18 on the year.
Cue dancing gifs in the comments!
Ervin Santana, obvs
Brian Dozier: Dinger
Kennys Vargas: A nice big pair of doubles.
Twins Bullpen: Too lazy to even pitch one inning?!
