Game 2 – 1978 Tournament Replay Twins vs Astros

Game 2

Game 2 feels like a must win got the Astros here at the Astrodome as they are looking at a Grade A pitcher on Goltz in Game 3. Twins send Geoff Zahn (14-14 3.03 Grade 14) to the mound opposite Mark Lemongello (9-14 3.94 Grade 6). Hitters were quiet through 3 innings until the Twins put a 3 spot up in the 4th made worse for the Astros by an error from centerfielder Terry Puhl. It allowed 2 runs to come home after 2 were out. That would be more than enough for Geoff Zahn as he tosses a complete game shoutout to give the Twins a 2-0 lead heading back to Metropolitan Stadium.

Final Score: Twins 6, Astros 0

WP: Geoff Zahn (1-0)

LP: Mark Lemongello (0-1)

HR’s: None

Astros have to find some offense down 2-0. Starters for game 3 is Goltz vs Niekro
