The Minnesota Vikings put a hurting on the Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday night in Minneapolis.
Oh, wait a second. That actually should read the Minnesota Twins put a hurting on the Seattle Mariners, as the Twins exploded for a 20-7 win at Target Field on Tuesday night in a game with a final score that much more resembles an NFL final score than a baseball score. And speaking of football scores, the win was a nice bounce-back for Minnesota after Monday’s 14-3 loss to Seattle.
Minnesota scored the 20 runs on 28 hits, scoring seven runs (a touchdown and an extra point?) in an inning in both the third and the seventh.
No one had a better night than outfielder Eddie Rosario, who played the best game of his entire life, going 4-for-5 with three home runs and five RBI.
Rosario was one of eight Twins with at least two hits, and one of five with at least three hits. The bottom of the Minnesota order, including Rosario, did work, as the six through nine hitters combined to go 15-for-21 with 13 RBI.
The most incredible stat, though, might have been the time of game. The game lasted just 3 hours and 4 minutes, which is incredible, considering the 27 combined runs.
