Matt Underwood puts it in his ballsack as Indians lose

You are probably wondering why I'm talking about Matt Underwood and the word... "ball-sack"

It's pretty simple actually.

If you watched the game tonight and were listening carefully to the explanation Underwood was giving about the incident happening with umpire Jim Joyce and Rafael Betancourt.

You would have heard this.

Matt Underwood: Joyce reluctantly took it from Shoppach and put it in his ball-sack.

Fittingly, Underwood just did a "Sponsored by Fruit of the Loom" spot as they returned from commercial.

Anyway.... I'm done making fun of Matty and his use very loose term of ballsack. We all make mistakes. In hindsight, I'm sure he wished he said something like "ball pocket" or "ball holster".

Then again, "Ball Holster" isn't much better is it?

ANYWAY.. Marty, Marty, WELCOME to the PARTY!

Andy Marte got it going last night, knocking in his first run of the year. About damn time if you ask me.. He then tried to hit his first home run of the year in the ninth of Joe Nathan. But the ball was literally inches away from clearing the wall. Still, 2-4 with a double and a RBI is not bad at all.

Aaron Laffey held the Twins to one hit and two runs until the 4th inning hit. Mauer would add a solo shot in the 5th and that would make it a 5 inning, 4 run night for Laffey. Not spectacular but not bad.

Bullpen would get the chance to hold it though. Mastny was the first guy to get a shot and he promptly shot himself in the foot.

The sixth inning would prove to be too much.

Grady Sizemore increased his league lead in Home Runs with another jack to give him 22 on the year and Carroll added a RBI double in the 7th.
