Game Notes: 6-16

Pirates lose 8-2 at the hands of the Minnesota Twins

  • Nyjer Morgan hits 2 run homerun-1st of the 2009 season
  • 5 double plays were turned by the Pirates-they lead the MLB in that category
  • Paul Maholm had his worst start of the year-8 earned runs and 14 hits
  • Joe Mauer is outstanding- he went 4-4 and is currently batting .414

It will be interesting to see how this interleague matchup turns out. The Bucs had a lot of luck in the last series against the Tigers getting 2 out of 3. With the offensive firepower that the Twins posess it will be tough for the Pirates to get out of the Land of Lakes with a decent win.
