Game 1

Minnesota 0 5 0

Arizona 1 6 1

WP: Nick Wilson (4-0, 2.08)

LP: Kenneth Banks (1-1, 2.70)

SV: Justin Ward (4, 0.00)
POG: Kenneth Banks, 7.0 IP, 4 H, 4 BB, 2 K


Neither team could muster any offense of which to speak against the other team’s postseason ace. Minnesota garnered 5 hits, with only 1 extra base hit being a double by RF Terry Dodd (1-4, 2B) who was thrown out at home three batters later in the fourth. Minnesota ’s pitching staff did everything that was asked of it with Kenneth Banks (5.0 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 5 BB, 4 K), Francisco Vega (perfect 6th inning), and Orber Pierre (2.0 IP, 3 H, 2 K) keeping the game close. Arizona broke through in the bottom of the fifth as Jung-Lee Koh (1-2, R, 2BB, SB) walked with 2 outs, stole second and then scored when Buddy Buckley (1-4, RBI) singled to RF Dodd, who misjudged the high fly ball. Buckley was thrown out at home two batters later trying to go from 2nd to home on a single by Bernie Ortiz (3-4). Justin Ward (1.0, 1 K) pitched a perfect 9th for the save.
