5-8-08: Twins 2 - Sox 6

May 8, 2008 - Chicago, Illinois

The bounce back.

Up game followed by a down game followed by an up game. Baseball can be funny like that sometimes. The pitching showed up and the bats came out. It's simply amazing what a day can do to a struggling team.

Jermaine Dye had a 2 for 3 day, with a solo homer. Uribe topped home run and had one of his own with a runner on base! When was the last time that something like that happened? It's been too long.

The good:
Homers by Dye and Uribe.

The starting pitching was decent.

The bad:
Paul Konerko went 0 for 4.

It looked like a repeat when the Twins scored first.

The ugly:
8 runners left on base.

Toby Hall was 1 for 3 in catching base runners stealing.

All in all, a good game for the Sox. It shows that they don't let embarrassing losses linger for long. They don't forget about them either. Maybe when the Twins scored two, the Sox felt they had to score right away and often, so they wouldn't get beaten again.
