2019 Game 78: Tampa Rays v. Minnesota Twins

Twins back at Target Field for a quick 3-game homestand after a quick 4-game road swing through Kansas City. Injuries, some poor defense, non-clutch hitting have left the Twins at (checking notes.....) 5-5 over their last 10 games. Unfortunately Cleveland has suddenly started to play well and have picked up three games on the Twins over that time. Kyle Gibson on the mound for the Twins and unfortunately bad Gibby showed up last time out, I thought he was left behind in a closet somewhere. Blake Shell on for the Rays and he was shelled (see what I did there?) in his last outing -- lasting only 1 out and giving up 6 runs. Let's hope he doesn't all of sudden get healthy for the Rays today. Rays in the middle of a 10 game road trip that hasn't gone super great for them, hopefully their June Swoon is greater than the Twins minny (see what I did there?) swoon.

7:10P start, great night for a game.

    1. The car satellite radio only had the home team feed - I quite enjoyed the low key style of the KC radio team.

  1. Max "Snubbed" Kepler will hit a home run tonight and when he does it will give me an internet point.

  2. OK in high school this is where they would bring in the scrubs to finish the game. Mercy.

    1. With all the food hot takes flying around today, I expect someone will come in and disagree with this.

                1. Ok, so I was joking and I hope u know that. And if were serious about well done A1, well ... I got nothing.

  3. Got home at 8 after 11 hours at work. Mowed the lawn and came in to see Twins up 8 to 0. Gibby immediately gives up a Jack and my wife made me frozen pizza for dinner. She obviously didn't read today's cup of coffee.

  4. I'm hoping the twins take care of business in 9 so we don't have to see another Sano at bat...
