Goat of the Day: 7/5/05

In the top of the first, the Twins had Ervin "Magic" Santana on the ropes. Shannon singles on pitch 7. He advances to second on a wild pitch, but Darling Nikki strikes out on pitch 10. Joe Mauer singles on pitch 3 and Shannon scores. Torii singles on pitch 3 (Joe on 2nd). Jacque stikes out on 6 pitches. Lew walks on 4 pitches, loading the bases. Justin Morneau looks at pitch 34 for a strike and pops strike 35 to first to retire the side. We had made everything look bad for Junior Santana except the scoreboard. Justin had a great chance to blow it open before the rookie took the mound, but he didn't, and gets the blame for this loss.
