Twins Win!

Mr. Goat and I won free tickets to the Twins Game on Saturday night.  We went with @AlexaTC and her husband.  It was a perfect night.  Not too hot or sunny with a slight breeze.  We had great seats but it seems that all of Target Field's seats are good.  It is a great stadium.

It was a pitching dual and was a well played defensive game.  Our first run was scored with back to back sacrifice hits (a bunt and a fly) and the score stayed that way until we got an insurance run in the 8th.  Duensing pitched a complete shutout game - his first.


There was some rain clouds throughout the evening but it didn't really start doing anything until the end of the game when it sprinkled some.  We walked to the car in the sprinkle and as soon as we got in the storms hit and suddenly it was pouring.  We had timed it perfectly.

It was a fast game too so we got home in plenty of time.  All in all it was a great date night for Mr. Goat and I.  Go Twins!

At first I thought you were talking about the game tonight. Much to Grandpa Goat's dismay, the Twins won this game too!

I'm glad you guys had fun! I really like Duensing - I got to meet him a few years ago before he got called up to the major leagues. He was signing autographs at the ballpark in Rochester, NY when I went to a AAA game with my mom. Nice kid.

Liz, you're hilarious. This reads like a sports report on the evening news, combined with the weather report. Glad it was fun!
