Cubs @ Twins: June 8th-10th, 2012
Cubbies Faithful cruised up I-90 for the interleague match up at Target Field in early June. This was the club’s first time going to Target Field (the Twins used to play at the Metrodome), although the two teams have faced each other over 10 times in interleague play since 1997. The North Siders took 1 out of 3 from the Twins with a stellar performance on Sunday from Ryan Dempster (8 IP, 4 H, 6 Ks). The first two games saw Joe Mauer return with power, to the dismay of the Cubs pitching staff. Friday’s game saw a tough 10th inning walk off and Saturday’s showed that the Twins can actually hit the ball, winning 11-3. Cubs fans got to meet the young, speedy Tony Campana in a private pre-game reception. The VIP tour of Target Field revealed a fantastic new facility with gorgeous views of the city! Check out some pictures from the awesome weekend of baseball in the Twin Cities!
