That is the game. To be honest I am happy not to be playing Atlanta with their solid hitting and pitching. They were able to produce offence from the beginning of the game. The Twins on the other hand seem to be having a real struggle, we just finished a series with them but they just seem that things are falling apart now. The twins just can’t seem to find that grove for things to fall into place all at once to start winning games.

Thanks for sharing the time with me
