Game 89- Royals 4, Twins 3 (34-55)
Yes! Yes! Yes! Great game to win tonight! The Royals went into the 9th with a 3-1 lead, channeling the spirit of the team in the mid-80s, only to have a 9th inning that was straight out of this year's nightmare storybook; and thanks to a specious "triple" by Jose Offerman the game was tied. The Royals somehow drew three walks in the 10th inning, and Dee Brown (no, not the point guard at Illinois or the former-Celtics backup) managed a single and the game was won.
Mike Wood pitched the game of his life, going 6.0 strong and allowing only 1 run. Of course, this might have had something to do with the hacktastic approach the Twins took, but, its Sunday, so I'm not gonna be negative towards another team.
In other news, the Royals played 10 innings and only manged one extra-base-hit, a double by Berroa. Its a little disheartening that only 20K were on hand to see the Royals play spoiler to the Twins, but then again, a lost season is a lost season, and its hard to get too worked up about anything.  I love this quote from Gardy, "``It was a terrible baseball game by our baseball team. That's pretty sad. We missed plays. We missed opportunities.''
Welcome to our nightmare Twins fans. Terrible baseball? Seen it. Missed plays? Watched 'em. Missed opportunities? Hell, we lost a game on Ken Harvey getting hit by a throw home.
