These Twin City Kisses Sound Like Clicks and Hisses: Game Preview and Thread, Jays at Twins

Well, tough loss yesterday - some less-than-spectacular fielding, poor situational hitting, and questionable tactical calls all played their part. An extra-inning loss is always tough, and particular after such a gutsy and effective start by Ricky Romero:

"It's more bitter than anything," Romero said. "You hate to lose, especially when we battled so hard all game to get two runs. It's a tough one to swallow."Yeah, that pretty much sums it up. But today's another game, and a chance for Scott Richmond to come back after some early long-ball and the rain frustrated his last start. Travis Snider and Lyle Overbay are back in the lineup, and Michael Barrett gets the start behind the plate. Let's go Jays, and gotta love the Hold Steady.
