Ryan Doumit commits three errors in an inning; first outfielder to do so since '89 [VIDEO]
If a Twin makes three errors in an inning but nobody is there to see it...

defensive butcher outfielder and catcher Ryan Doumit made the wrong kind of history during last night's 10-5 loss to the Kansas City Royals at a deserted Target Field.
In the eighth inning, Doumit became the first outfielder since 1989 to commit not one, not two, but three errors in the same inning.
Here's the video:
After the game, Doumit said, "I'm going to have days like this." In other words, he basically 'fessed up to being one of the worst defensive players in the game.
"It's embarrassing, but I'm going to learn from it and go out and get 'em tomorrow." And for better or worse, he'll continue to 'go get 'em' in a Twins uniform for the foreseeable future, as in June the Twins signed Doumit to a two-year, $7-million extension.
The Twins, currently tied for the worst record in the AL, have 19 games left in their second consecutive awful season. And if the attendance at Tuesday night's game is any indication (see photo at top of post), the only living things in attendance at Target Field during their last home games will be hawks and moths.
