Thursday was not a good night for the Minnesota Twins at Target Field. The fighting Twinkies lost the game by a score of 5-2, but lost something even bigger in the fourth inning.
In the fourth inning, starter Phil Hughes took a line drive off of his right shin and was removed from the game. Hughes final line shows three innings of work allowing four hits and two earned runs. The current diagnosis for Hughes is a shin contusion.
The Twins offense was not really heard from until the eighth inning, by that time the Twins were already trailing the White Sox by five runs. The only Twins run came via a Danny Santana two-run home run shot.
The Twins and White Sox will play three more games in this series; Sunday will be the only day game in the series.
