Hootin' an' hollerin'

Minneapolis, Minnesota

What a perfect way to end July!

Gabe, our Scottish terrier, and I went wild watching Game 4 of the Minnesota Twins / Chicago White Sox series played tonight at the Metrodome in Minneapolis. What a team the Twins are, fighting back from a four-run deficit to win the game 10 to 6, sweeping the series 3 to 1, and moving into a half game out of first in the A-L Central!

The Twins manager, Ron Gardenhire, was ejected for the fifth time this season, after protesting a strike called against a batter who was hit by the pitch. When Gardenhire kicked his cap in the air on his way out, fans in the stands threw theirs onto the field, after which Chicago's manager pulled his team off the field. Real ugliness was promised but avoided.

The game also featured two, three-run homers by Twins Justin Morneau and Jason Kubel, and the Twins' scoring of seven runs off four hits in two innings. It was one of the best games this season. Chicago's boys of summer are welcome in our town any time!

Y'all come back!
