All by myself, in the Twin Cities!  Took the Light Rail from the Mall of America, got down there as the gates opened, found a nice general admission seat about as far away from the action as you can get, out in centerfield.  Tonite I didn’t wear my glasses, I’d rather not see a win, than see the losses I saw the last two nights.  I’m not superstitious, but I know what works.  Whatever it takes!

It was time for Livan Hernandez, 8-1 at home this year, but it was the White Sox turn.  Carlos Quentin hit a solo shot just over the leftfield wall, then ripped a bases clearing, two out double, it was 5-0 Good Guys.  The Twinks scored, but then Alexei Ramirez put the game on ice with a three run jack.  Gavin Floyd held the Twins hitters at bay.  BIG BAD Bobby Jenks was brought on in the 9th to get some work in, Minnesota scored a couple of meaningless runs, despite Nick Swisher hitting the wall to grab an out in right, final score 8-3.  Now I’ve got a winning streak to keep going.

One more game tomorrow night, after the game I hop the Big Grey Dog back to the Windy City.
