So the Twins win, although that doesn't really matter too much in spring training. Johan and Carlos both allow some baserunners but escape with scoreless outings, Tony Batista whips out some surprisingly deft defense, Scott Ullger goes back to third base coach and leaves the bat coaching to Joe Vavra, Torii Hunter cranks the first pitch he sees in a looong time directly over the left field fence, Joe Mauer and Coco Crisp both hit very well, and somehow the Twins cobble together 3 home runs. Yes, three! In the same game!
Let's try that again... how about today at 12:05 against the Reds?
