  1. Provus said it was a good decision to hold Sano at third, and I have no basis to argue with him. But it sure is frustrating to get three hits in an inning and not score.

  2. I suspect all these runners left on base are going to come back to haunt us in this game. But on the other hand, I guess it's better than not getting runners on base at all.

        1. You know what bothers me most?* Joe with a chance, at least, to keep the inning alive, but instead flying weakly to center and feeding the narrative of the idiot-masses.

          *actually, what bothers me most is the Gibby-nibbling. Guy drives me bonkers.

    1. Offense was stymied again but the guys who have been struggling the most had the best games (or didn't have an at-bat). What hurt was the Twins had 6 hits in 7 PAs and got 1 run out of it. Of course, the 1 out ended the first inning. Mauer and Rosario will be fine if they continue as they have so far. Both have very low BABIP. Buxton is the one that is concerning, but he is a notorious slow starter. Hopefully, he'll remember what brought success in September last year.
