If we can just win the last 2 games, we'll have had a 7-2 homestand. There's nothing wrong with that. It's perfectly respectable, bordering on awesome. (Guys, I am really going to need you to win the next 2 games. It's embarrassing to lose to Oakland. OK?)
We went to the game on Saturday.
I took a picture of Carlos Gomez looking at his knees.
Going into the game, we had a few bits of history to consider. We've seen Scott Baker pitch many, many times. The Twins have only lost ONE of those games. Those are pretty good odds, except that the one game they lost was against Seattle last season. We remember these things. We hoped for the best, but prepared ourselves for the worst. But, it all worked out OK in the end. A win is a win, even if we have to gnaw our fingernails down in the process. We'll take it.
Here's a Happy Thought:
Assuming the team doesn't completely melt down on the road, we're on pace to score almost 100 more runs than last year.
