Brandon Morrow made his first appearance of the season the day he came off the DL. He entered a 5-2 game in the ninth inning. He started the inning giving up an infield single to shortstop by Nick Punto, a hit that Bentancourt should have grabbed for an out.
Morrow got the next two outs, one on a strikeout. He then gave up a single to Joe Mauer. With two outs, he then lost complete control and walked the next two batters on eight straight pitches and through 10 balls in a row before getting his first strike. He eventually got Brendon Harris to ground out.
Morrow was at full power throwing mostly 95-96 MPH, and his control was terrible. He couldn't get his fastball down in the zone and before he lost it, Mauer hit a high fastball for the RBI single.
