Twins Rout White Sox

A 12-5 victory over the White Sox last night was filled with highlights for the Minnesota Twins.

In the 6th inning Jason Kubel broke a 7-3 lead into an 11-3 rout with a grand slam. Kubel went 2-6 with 6 RBIs in the game. Brendan Harris went 3-4 and scored 3 runs. Scott Baker pitched solid, not great, but he did strike out 7 in 5 innings and gave up 3 runs.

Ron Gardenhire said before the game,
All we're looking for is some more consistent swings throughout the lineup. We've had a guy hot here and there. We haven't really clicked as an offense yet.

Gardy got what he was looking for as the Twins set season highs scoring 12 runs and collecting 13 hits.

Of all the highlights, Carlos Gomez may have stole the show in the first inning. Gomez had a phenomenal diving catch in the center/rightfield gap. The play won himself a Web Gem and a #1 spot on Sportscenter top plays!

Tonight's game in Chicago has already been postponed due to heavy rain, so the team will move onto Kansas City for the weekend and the off day should actually help the rotation out. With Kevin Slowey unable to start Sunday and Francisco Liriano appearing unprepared to be called up, the rotation will get pushed back a day and everything should be fine.

Stay dry!
