Way Down in a Hole

Well, I certainly wasn't expected the Twins to fall behind 2-0 at home... but fall behind they did, after Oakland's 5-2 victory yesterday at the Dome. It was, sadly, the Twins' 7th straight playoff loss at home, after they of course went 8-0 in home World Series games in '87 and '91.

Torii Hunter, unfortunately, was the one who blew it, as he dove for one his trademark spectacular catches. But he missed the ball, which rolled to the wall, allowing an inside-the-park homer by Mark Kotsay to put the A's up 4-2. Even more sadly, it may be Hunter's last home game in a Twins uniform.

A silver lining? The A's have already lost two first-round series this decade after leading 2-0, and the Twins have Miracle Brad Radke going in Game 3. Go Twins- this season has been way too memorable to lose in a first-round sweep.
