Shea Gutierrez hit a double with one out in the top of the fifth inning. Then Tom Litchy came up to the plate. Litchy hit a single up the middle, and Gutierrez was able to score from second putting the Twins only down two runs.
The story of the night for the Twins was that they left 10 different players on the base pads. This is the third time this year they have left double-digit base runners on base in a single game.
Blake Shannon was a bright spot as he was able to 2-3 with a walk as the 8th batter. On the mound, Joseph Standley came into the 8th inning and had 2 strikeouts and did not allow run putting his ERA on the year at .000.
