Long balls v. no balls....long balls win.
Parker gets the win after his guys managed a cumulative 13 hits off of 5 different pitchers (out of 7 total used by the home club) including 4 more homeruns*.
Duensing gets the loss after a 41 pitch first and a total of 7 earned runs during his 2 completed innings. Poor shlub even walked in a run.
The Twins are now 36-52 (and a ghastly 17-28 at home) and 13 games behind the AL Central leading White Sox.
Justin Morneau extended his hitting streak to 15 games with a single in the sixth.
Zach Parise threw out the first pitch before the game. That's right - the Wild signed a couple of amazing free agents this off season. Bring on the snow!
*for a total of 9 homeruns by the Oakland F*cking Athletics!!! during the 3-game sweep.
