2020 Game Log 50 – Twins at White Sox

So that was frustrating. Twins leave 432,819 runners on base last night and couldn't close out on a White Sox team that has beat up on the Tigers and Royals but basically .500 against everyone else.

Dobnak on the mound for the Twins who had a really bad 3rd inning a week ago against the Cardinals. Someone called Dane Dunning pitching for the Sox.

First pitch at 7:10 and would be nice if the Twins could rally and cruise to the Division championship these last 11 games.

2020 Game Log 49: Minnesota Twins at Chicago White Sox

Big four game series starting against the Sox tonight. I mentioned this somewhere else but it sure feels like a long time since the Sox and Twins were going down to the wire at the end of a season, such as it is.

Hopefully we get another outing of good Berríos, for both the Twins and my fantasy team! Cease is getting his third major league start, and the first two weren't great.

As weird as this season has been, at least it's been interesting for us Twins fans.

Remodeled basement. Same half-baked taste.
