Defense? Sox Lose 4-3

The Twins managed to take 2/3 from the Sox on a day the Sox really felt the lose of Nomar Garciaparra. Newcomer Orlando Cabrera homered in his first at bat, but the Sox would manage only 2 hits against Johan Santana and Joe Nathan. Yet again the Twins beat the Sox in the 8th. Justin Morneau hit a long fly ball to deep left center, Gabe Kapler made the catch and fired it towards the infield, Tori Hunter scored on the Sac Fly, meanwhile as the ball traveled to the infield, Lew Ford headed to 3rd. As Cabrera was about to cut off the ball, it kicked of his foot and rolled past 1st base allowing Ford to score.
In the 9th Mark Bellhorn was hit by a pitch, Cabrera struk out swinging and Manny Ramirez, who earlier hit his league leading 28th home run, hit into a double play.
