I realized just now that last night's edition did NOT have the May 23rd game for the Twins. This cold is getting to me. Thankfully it's on its last days.
Hitter of the Day:
Justin Morneau: 3-5 2 HR (8), 2B (7), 3 RBI, 3 R
Pitcher of the Day:
Madison Boer - RHP - FTM - A+: 5 IP, 3 H, 1 ER (2 R), 0 BB, 3 SO
I chose Boer not because he had the best line (though no one really took charge of that tonight), but after his struggles after his promotion from Beloit to Ft. Myers, he showed good signs. Without watching or listening to the game, and only relying on the stat line, I don't know the full details, but hist previous 4 starts in Ft. Myers he went a total of 14 2/3 IP, 38 H. 26 ER, 4 HR, 9 BB, 6 SO. So back to my point, even at 5 Innings Pitched he had by far his best day in the minors, and his 1st or 2nd best performance of his young professional career. It would be nice to string a couple of these together for the 2011 2nd round draftee, but for now with the lack of optimism across all levels, I will take a start like this!
