This will not be long, and I'll use the Twins' frustrating loss as my excuse, although it's really because I have to do a good amount of work tonight.
When you outhit a team 14-9, you expect to win. This is especially true if, through seven innings, you've outhit the other team 13-6. What was the score at that point tonight? 4-4! Jose Mijares then hit his first bump, allowing 3 hits and a run to take the loss.
And, since I was watching on Gameday, I can't really get too bent out of shape about it, but Denard Span's called third strike in the ninth inning looked to be far outside. Anyone want to let me know if it was as bad a call as the below picture indicates (it's pitch #8)?
