The Bleacher Bums: April 22, 2006 Archive

Pattern recognition.

Posted at 9:37 PM on April 22, 2006 by Josh Lee (2 Comments)

Here's a summary of the Twins' offensive performance in their 9-2 loss to the White Sox:

1st Inning: The Twins strand a runner.
2nd Inning: The Twins strand two runners.
3rd Inning: The Twins strand two runners.
4th Inning: The Twins strand a runner.
5th Inning: Lewwwww refuses to be stranded, steals two bases to put himself in a position where Luis Rodriguez has no choice but to sacrifice him in.
6th Inning: Torii leads the inning off with a home run, before any stranding can get underway.
7th Inning: The Twins strand three runners.
8th Inning: Mike Redmond goofs up, and instead of stranding a runner, he grounds into an inning-ending double play.
9th Inning: The Twins strand two runners.

I can't decide if the Twins had a very bad night at the plate, or if they almost had a very good one. On the other hand, there isn't much question as to what kind of night the pitchers had (here's a hint: it starts with an "L" and ends in "ousy").
