Game 49: The Texases vs. The Minnesotas

Welp, here's that losing streak we all feared. Maybe it won't be as bad now that some guys are back who actually have OF next to their name on their baseball cards.

Darvish (4-2, 2.35 ERA) vs. Hughes (5-1, 3.15 ERA)

Hmmm, not really the best guy to have to face to get out of this losing streak. Having Hughes starting this game combined with the Rangers injury woes should help give the Twins a fighting chance to avoid making it a 5 game streak. He's no Johan, but it's nice to have a guy that gives you the feeling that he can go out there while the team is struggling to win and give them a good chance at getting back on track.

I've used the featured image for a game log before, but I probably should have saved it for this game since its the Twins vs. the Rangers at the Bullseye. Hopefully this game goes as well as that one did.

    1. Well geez, that makes twice now where I've previewed the wrong starting pitcher this year.

  1. Twins broadcasters being nice to Baker now that he out of a Twins uniform.

  2. Mauer RBI
    and an extra base hit
    AND pulled the ball

    its all the things Mauer haters hate!

    1. Back when I played, my power was to the opposite field, so Joe is my hero. I feel betrayed by this pulling crap, so booooooo.

    1. I think he has a fair complaint about Nunez being out of the base path. But still, why not throw to first for the easier out?

  3. Technically, Beltre wasn't trying to tag Nunez at the point where Nunez ran around him.


  5. The Rangers shouldn't feel cheated. That wallbanger by Arcia would've gone about 450 feet in any other stadium.

    1. Twins are lucky they built that huge ass wall, otherwise that would've been a selfish, rally killing homer.

    2. That still would have just tied the game. Nunez's hit was totally legit to tie it. The rest were their own fault. Don't count on an ump to call running out of the baseline. Beltre is a Gold Glover and he's afraid to throw to first?

  6. And that was a teachable moment for Aquinas. "Always run, you never know what will happen."

  7. I wish there was a "Like" button here, because I would go through and like all of these posts right now.
