>1-0 Losses

21 Jul

>Welcome back to The Sports Ace, where we never lose a ballgame by a 1-0 score.

Congrats to the Burnsville Blaze, the state champions of Senior Babe Ruth baseball. Look for these achievers at a varsity level near you in the next few years.

Greg Norman couldn’t quite get it done on the golf course in the British Open, but he thrilled us all anyways with the thought that he could still win a major. Let’s hope he was at least able to get it done in other ways while he was on his honeymoon.

The Twins have lost FOUR 1-0 games this year. One or two is a lot, but four?? TSA’s pats on the back today go to Scott Baker, who’s been on the hill for three of those four 1-0 games. All three of his losses this year have been in 1-0 games…that just sucks for him. Seriously…you get him any run support at all and he’s a 9-0 pitcher. Plus, the Twins would be in the race for homefield advantage throughout, not 1/2 game behind the White Sox in the division. Ugh.

Also, the Twins are at the Yankees for three games starting tonight. Will they have that east coast bias at play, as I’ve talked about before? Who knows. I’ll personally be watching for a few of my buddies who will be in the House that Ruth Built tonight to personally witness the action. If you see three crazies with Circle Me Bert signs, chances are it’s them.

I’m out like John Daly.
