2019 Game Log 48: Twins at Halos

Game 6 of a pretty successful (so far) 7-game West Coast swing for the Twins as they try for another victory against the Halos. Michael Pineda back on the mound for the Twins and while still definitely a 5th starter, there have been signs of life from Pineda over the past few starts, including a nice little victory last week against the Mariners. Pineda has not done well against LAAAAA in his career so look out.

Trever Cahill with his 2-4 record and 6.95 ERA for the Angels. He pitched last week against the Twins and gave up six runs in 4.1 innings so hopefully the Twins have his number. Cahill has also given up a MLB leading 14 home runs meaning the Twins’ boomsticks should be out in force tonight. It looks like Ben Andrelton Simmons will be out for the rest of the series against the Twins. Too bad, He’s a fun player. I hope he gets back to raking once healthy (and the Twins have moved on). Ohtani has recovered and will be in the line up tonight.

Another west coast late start as first pitch is at 9:07p. Let’s get a nice little five run lead by the 3rd inning so we can go to bed a decent hour.

If you want some baseball before the Twins game, former Twins pitching stalwarts Tommy Milone and Lance Lynn will be facing each other as the Seattle takes on the Rangers. Check local listings.

Twins Lineup:
RF Kepler
SS Polanco
DH Gonzalez
LF Rosario
1B Cron
3B Arraez

  1. Another west coast late start as first pitch is at 9:07p. Let’s get a nice little five run lead by the 3rd inning so we can go to bed a decent hour.

    Between the game & the wind tonight, there will be a tempting lullaby. I’m glad we bought this comfy recliner.

        1. My folks were cool with a softly playing radio in my room, thankfully. WCCO was not always clear in the river valley, so KWNO was how Herb found us. After the game it would switch over to Larry King, then Coast-to-Coast with Art Bell.

          1. I remember one night going to bed in my grandma's four-season porch in Lake City. I had a portable radio on my chest and I was somehow picking up AM stations from all over the country, including a Cardinals game.

  2. I stepped away at 3 - 0 Angels after 5. Watched an episode of television with my wife (Game of Thrones, season 6). Came back, 7 - 3, Arraez at the plate.

    Man, I love this.

  3. Los Gigantes rallying in the bottom of nine. Panda with a chance to tie it or walk it off with two outs.
