How do they not have a shot down the lines? I think the Twins got lucky there.
Very lucky.

Arraez out on 3 strikes, Sano works a full count.

The universe is ending.

an important out.



it'd be nice if they can get another inning out of the alka-schmeltzer man without any more damage done. one out-two to go.

rocco wanted clarification on that kepler challenge play back in the first inning. it shouldn't have taken longer than a minute to clear up.

twins patched it together almost perfectly thru six innings. now they turn it over to their back end beginning with duffey.

Couple loud outs that could have been hits. Would be nice to tack on 1-2 but pen can close it out as well.

Cleveland was much better last year. They should deal two of their aces and stack the farm system with bats. The Tigers are better than these clowns.

That was a gift for May. That was about to get real interesting. No idea why the hell he's in the 8th though.

close calls going the twins way this afternoon. now they need to finish it off. a run or two here wouldn't hurt the cause at all.

An ass-kicking without actually kicking Cleveland ass. It's gotta be demoralizing going into a huge series with your 4 best starters and losing 3 out of 4. Twins pitching was pretty damn good, but that Cleveland lineup is just horseshit from 5-9.
No wonder Tito skipped this one to sit on the terlet.

They aren't hitting for shit and striking out way too damn much, but they're somehow 7-2. Big thanks to the pitching staff for that one, sans Berrios anyway.

My god this pen is awesome. Never felt in doubt even with the bats silent most of the game.

alka-smeltzer man gets the W. always nice when he gets one from the cancer survivor perspective. he also talked with his oncologist about even playing this season because of his potentially being considered more vulnerable for the effects of the virus. he might be-but he's pitching.
