Texas Shuts Out Minnesota 7-0!
Tim’s Texas team sent Minnesota to a seven run loss with a shutout, 7-0. No balls left the park, although leadoff hitter Ken managed a two run inside-the-park-homerun during a four run third inning that opened up a 5-0, insurmountable lead. While Texas’ pitching did manage 5 K’s, their pitching wasn’t as dominating as expected for a rare shutout. The game mirrored Monday’s matchup between S.F. and Oakland, in that the losing team always seemed to be hitting the ball right at a fielder and the winning team had perfectly placed hits.
“I think Davey’s getting a taste of what I got yesterday.” said manager Tim. “A seven run loss is never fun, but it’s even more frustrating getting shut out.” Davey’s Minnesota team, last seen on the winning side of a slugfest in the first ever night game, couldn’t muster a single home run and kept missing opportunities to fight back. Double plays ended a number of innings and with only two extra-base hits (both doubles), they rarely saw themselves in a position to score.
