Thanks to Mike Herman of the Twins baseball communications department, we were able to grab Twins manager Ron Gardenhire following his main press conference to get more details on Jesse Crain’s sore groin muscle.
But it led to some interesting stuff from the Twins manager about Game 1 and the state of his team.
Brian Duensing’s pitch to Alex Rodriguez was the moment that jumped out at him the most. He said pitching coach Rick Anderson told Duensing to be careful with the All-Star because the chances were good that he would chase something off the plate. But Duensing grooved a pitch.
“We gave up A-Rod’s first (postseason) RBI in five years,” he said. “Chrysler.”
Maybe we can get Jerry Van Dyke to now star in a sitcom called “My A-Rod The K-Car”?
