"The first five innings looked like a ZIP code, that will tell you how it went-33354," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "I think that's Florida-Fort Lauderdale."

Rangers beat Twins 20-6, scoring at least 3 runs in each of first 5 innings. Michael Cuddyer (1b to rf to p) pitched the 8th inning for Twins, loading the bases but otherwise shutting down the Rangers.

Portsmouth, NH has some zip codes that start with '000'. Maybe the Twins should move Spring Training.

That's got to be one of the sports quotes of the year.

Apparently, it's not a zip code.

well, Gardenhire said it looks "like" a zip code, and I know that 33454 is an actually zip code, so he was only off by one.

That game looked like a slow pitch softball game between very mismatched teams.

Stupid Rangers, screwing up a perfectly good quote.
