Today is Getaway day here in the Twin Cities for the Twins afternoon game against the Indians.
The Twins bats were stymied by Cliff Lee last night and Anthony Swarzak was hit hard in his 3rd major league start as the Twins lost 10-1.
The only run came in the 7th when Carlos Gomez hit a single that scored Jason Kubel. Gomez was also involved in a little jawing with pitcher Cliff Lee.
Early in the game, Gomez bunted with 2 strikes and raced to first but the ball went foul which resulted in a strikeout for Gomez. He did the same thing last year against Lee and Lee had some words for Gomez after a fly out in the 5th.
"Why didn't you bunt that time?" was what you could read Lee saying during the replay
After the game, Gomez defended his choice to bunt with two strikes:
"He can say whatever he wants to say. This is my game. The bunt put me here, and I have to work every day to get better and keep bunting."
This was the most spark the Twins had all night.
Today's starters are Francisco Carmona (2-5) vs. Scott Baker (2-6) and the game time is 12:10 pm. All the representatives from here at Court's Sports will be at the game today...cheap seats of course.
Check back tomorrow for a game recap.
