Game one of the second doubleheader for the Minnesota Twins in the past week went a lot like the first doubleheader. The Minnesota Twins scored one run and the opponent scored more than that. It didn’t matter if it was the Cleveland Indians or the Chicago White Sox, because both have had the Twins number. Saturday saw a White Sox victory.

Phil Hughes got the nod in game one and pitched seven innings. Hughes had only given up three runs in seven innings until surrendering two runs in the eighth inning. With a 3-1 lead, Marcus Semien hit a RBI double to add a run to the Chicago lead. A couple batters later, Tyler Flowers was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to give the Chicago a final lead of 5-1.

The Twins only collected four hits in game one. Joe Mauer, Oswaldo Arcia, Kurt Suzuki and Chris Parmelee were the lucky few. Parmelee was the offensive MVP of the game for the Twins in only on plate appearance. Parmelee came in as a pinch-hitter for Aaron Hicks and proceeded to hit an RBI double to give the Twins their lone run.

Here is the boxscore from Saturday’s first game.
