Game Log Games 56 and 57 — White Sox and Twins

We have a doubleheader today and it's one of those old fashioned doubleheaders where they don't clear out the stadium between games. In celebration, we'll have a doubleheader game log too. No need to find a new game log for game two. All its all right here.

Twins against White Sox and again, if the they want to be competitive in the AL Central, sweeping the double against the Whities is imperative for the Twins.

Twins putting up a couple of rookies against Chicago. Fernando Romero in game 1, and Zack Little in game 2. According to the Strib, Zack Little was "acquired from the Yankees for Jaime Garcia last July, was 0-3 with a 5.87 ERA at Class AA Chattanooga before being promoted to Class AAA Rochester. He’s 1-1 with a 2.57 ERA in five outings for the Red Wings, including four starts. In 28 innings, Littell, 22, has given up eight earned runs on 20 hits and 10 walks with 30 strikeouts." he's only up for the doubleheader so hopefully he takes the opportunity to impress Molitor and the gang, while also enjoying some sweet big league perks.

White Sox are putting up someone called Reynaldo Lopez and Lucas Giolito who have records and stats you would associate with a team 20 games under .500 on June 5th. Both are young however. Not sure if they fit in the Sox overall plan.

First game at 3:10. Looks like a gorgeous day for baseball. Let's play two!

  1. Important question: why haven't we nicknamed LaMarre "Hedley" yet?

  2. The Twins have won every game this season in which one of their players hit three home runs. I'd like to see them keep using that strategy.

    Did they ever say why Littell rather than Slegers for game two? I'm not criticizing it--they both deserve a shot--I just wonder what the reason is.

    1. Pickoff number eight. Washington leads MLB with nine. Milwaukee and San Francisco also have seven. Washington has 46 stolen bases, Milwaukee 41, and San Francsisco 24. The Twins have 18.

  3. I don't know why Adrianza would be a threat to bunt, other than that he's not likely to hit it any other way.

  4. I kept thinking "Why is Rodney warming up?" Apparently Molitor knew something I didn't!

  5. While Rosario drives me nuts, I love watching him on third base when a left-hander is hitting.

  6. Geez. I had just gotten off the bike and thought I had a little more time to get a quick shower in while the Sox coach was coming out,so I completely missed the home run.

    1. Yeah, everyone go get some dinner. Things will be all in order by 6:30p.

  7. I'd think most teams would have a bad record in games in which they were out-hit.

  8., why would you drop the broadcast and make me go back and specifically click on the second game? I mean, it's not a big deal, but what's the point?

      1. Do you guys even know how long I've been waiting to talk about knitting here?!?!?!

  9. I don't think this is quite how Zack Littell envisioned his major league debut going.

    1. So naturally, against a terrible pitcher, we can't even get the ball out of the infield.

  10. Nothing more infuriating than a first-pitch GIDP against a pitcher who can't throw strikes.

  11. Well, I was hoping Littell would get through the fourth, but I can't fault Molitor for taking him out here.

  12. Im late to this, but why was Sano swinging at the first pitch from a pitcher who could not throw strikes GAH

  13. No joy on the farm so far tonight. Rochester trails Indianapolis 4-0 in the seventh, Mobile is beating Chattanooga 11-3 in the sixth, Fort Myers is behind Palm Beach 6-3 in the seventh. Cedar Rapids lost the first game of a doubleheader to Beloit 5-2. The DSL Twins lost to the DSL Yankees 3-2.

    1. And all those games turned into losses. The one chance the Twins have is the second game of the Cedar Rapids doubleheader. And the Kernels trail there 2-1 in the third.
