There was something in the paper about how this was the first time in many years that the Twins played a game where both starting pitchers had an ERA of under 1. Or maybe it was under 2. (I think that was it.) Ervin Santana against Chris Sales, for the Bostonians.
Well, naturally, that was like the kiss of death.
And the Twins got pasted, 17-6. (Though really they only got pasted for an inning, as they gave up 10 in the ninth.
Funny how pasted and shellacked have become other ways of saying defeated. Why is that?
