(6/18/14) Twins manager Ron Gardenhire revealed after Wednesday's game at Boston that he had to go with Casey Fien to close out the game in the 10th inning as closer Glen Perkins was unavailable due to a sore back. Unfortunately, Fien didn't get the job done in a 2-1 loss.
After Chris Parmelee put Minnesota ahead 1-0 in the top of the 10th with a solo home run, Fien retired Dustin Pedroia leading off the bottom of the inning on a fly out to right field. Unfortunately, David Ortiz and Mike Napoli followed with back-to-back solo home runs, sending Boston to the 2-1 win.
Fien (3-4) has suffered losses in each of his last two appearances. His ERA now stands at 2.76.
