the twins contend that justin haley did not intentionally throw at jacoby jones on saturday. but a pitch got away from the righthander, leading to a gruesome scene in the third inning as a bleeding jones had to be helped from the field and taken straight to a nearby hospital.miguel sano doesn’t understand why tigers lefthander matthew boyd threw behind him.“you don’t have a reason to hit me,” sano said. “no one wants to hit people in the face. that’s not true. that guy, if they say he’s somebody then they hit him in the leg or shirt or something. but never in the face.”sano later shoved tigers catcher james mccann for putting his mitt in his face and was ejected in the fifth inning. with sano gone, the twins went on to lose a generally poorly pitched, poorly defended game, 5-4 to detroit.j

"i throw it as slow as i can and let them hit it as far as they want."that's another irony: gimenez, unlike some actual twins pitchers, actually was successful, retiring andrew romine, the only batte
