Twins dos, Rays 8
Twins record 9-13, 5 and a half back
The last time I wrote a recap I said something like 'frankie had a rough day on the mound'. SoCal felt like that was an unfair assessment. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that frankie had a rough day on the mound, and I'm pretty sure SoCal will agree. After allowing hits to the first five batters Liriano struck out the next two batters, issued a base on balls, and induced a ground ball to end the inning. Frankie retired the next six batters in order. Then the wheels fell off the bus. He gave up a single to the first batter in the 4th inning, and then walked the next two to load the bases. Hacker was brought in to relieve frankie, and subsequently walked the first two men he faced. The mortician was called and the game was pronounced dead at the scene.
Featured Minnesota art venue: The Tweed Museum of Art. Next time y'all are in Duluth stop by the Tweed Museum on campus at UMD. There you're likely to encounter an excellent art collection which was donated to UMD by Alice Tweed Tuhoy and her husband George, including examples of French Impressionism, Barbizon school, 19th century spanish landscape paintings, contemporary art (including a print by your author), and a serious collection of Mountie paintings.
