  1. No scrubs in the lineup tonight. Might actually score some runs. Would actually help if Dozier would make contact on fastballs down the middle and not take hanging curveballs.

  2. You would think Sano would know that Junis was going to throw a curveball on the outside of the plate on his strike 2 pitch, yet Sano still tried to swing at it. Yeesh.

  3. Live look in on the 4ltr. Just in time to see Lynn give up a two-out single and 4-pitch walk.

  4. That was the dumbest pitching I've seen in the majors in a long time. Sano swung and missed at like at least 4 breaking balls from Junis in his first 2 at-bats and looked lost at the plate. Third time up, Junis throws him 3 fastballs in the zone (1 was called a ball but was actually in the zone) and Sano hits a home run on the third one. Thank you, Junis. The only thing that would explain that is Junis had hung 2 curveballs to Rosario, who swung through both of them. Junis might not have trusted his location on that is the only thing that makes sense.

    1. Hildy's was on the second pitch. The first pitch was several inches outside and called a strike. He then put the next pitch well in the strike zone inexplicably. Rogers only gave up a lineout and that was after falling behind.

    1. I don't know how the Twins coaxed a 1.2 bWAR out of Boyer, but it sure it an outlier compared to the rest of his career.
