TWINS MANAGER RON GARDENHIRE:


On Pino’s outing:

Pino was fabulous. We got to present him with the game ball, which was really cool for us, since it was his first major
league win. He had to really battle for it and he made it through the 5
th
inning, which was huge. He got some big outs for
us there.

On Parmelee’s stop in the 5
th
inning:

Hart hit it off the end of the bat and it was spinning like a Frisbee. It was running away from him, but Parmelee stayed with
it and Pino got over there to make the play at first base. That was a wild one. We made some good plays and made some
so-so ones, but ultimately you win three out of four here and that’s pretty good for us. We set out to have a winning road
trip and we’re off to a good start.

On Suzuki’s playmaking:

He’s a great player. He’s shooting line drives everywhere and he does a fantastic job behind the plate. He controls the
game back there, he controls the pitcher – if he’s having a rough time, [Suzuki] goes flying out there. He’s a coach on the
field, he’s an all-star and he deserves every bit of it.
