Two wins in a row! Injuries to Kepler and Arraez! Can we have good things?
By tonight, the Twins will be two-thirds of the way through their schedule, as one of the teams still on track to play all sixty games. They’re still in third, but can erase that with a perfect day here.
After finally coming back home to WGOM, in August I went through the most stressful month of my entire life. Without getting into specifics, suffice it to say that it’s over, and it’s nice to be back to worrying about nothing but silly stuff like baseball again. Let’s win two, gang.

Also, baseball is not silly.
Oh, for dumb. The app doesn’t add in a box for days off, so I saw the impending game and assumed it was today.
JOsh Donaldson just hit one to Duluth
Nice start to the ballgame. Gonna listen while painting, and hope my phone doesn't drain
I don't know, you probably don't want it to stay wet.
It's okay, it's not an Apple
That was slick!
Rooker's first plate appearance is him taking one for the team. Starting the OBP right at least.
I think. I think that.
Donaldson might be excited to be playing.
Maybe. At least a little.
Looks like this is the free game of the day, just in case.
Not a fan of pulling Dobnak there
A little weird but worked out fine I guess
Also 7 innings which I keep forgetting
Only 61 pitches. Maybe he can be the opener for Game 2.
It was only a two run lead going into the second-to-last inning. Facing Reyes-Schoop-Cabrera for the third time is a lot different than getting Demeritte-Romine-Paredes out the second time.
Hello, sir! Good to see you
Release the small hounds!
Rooker in right for game two.
And Twins bat first this time.
1:45 game time. So there's that
Last time a nine inning game was this short was 2010. 2005 had two games at 1:44 and 1:39. Last time with more than two games was 1981 with four.
MLB Gameday showing TBD for Game 2.
Wisler is the opener
Why are the Twins visitors in their own stadium? Is that a double-header deal?
Making up the game from DET last week due to scheduling
I went through the most stressful month of my entire life
Sorry, but there's more to come, dude.
Ha - walk up music for Detroit (because they are 'home' team).
there's only one choice for me: Rocket Man
10,000 WGOM bux or- 0? Trying to decide based on the fags.
heh. It was the 70s.
I saw Shatner at the Bushnell a couple of years ago - one-man show deal. I was surprised at the animosity between some of the original ST cast and him - especially Sulu.
Interesting part is that Shatner never said no to a gig. He had been poor/hungry early on and that affected his entire career.
From my John Lewis' book i learned that Uhuru means 'Freedom' in Sengalese - not sure if that is the same as Uhura.
There is no Senegalese language, so that can't be quite right. A quick search suggests that uhuru means freedom in Swahili.
Yes, you are correct.
Shatner's poor/hungry thing may be an explanation, but not an excuse for being a dick to his cast mates. Nimoy, in contrast, was a Mensch.
Agreed. A Dick. And a Canadian.
talk about Akrasia. How does a good Canadian do that to teammates?
I'll take any excuse to break out this half baked beauty:
If this is a double duty game log, need to update to show Twins at Tigers (at Twins) as well
Did that really just happen?
Rosie tagging up on first...
And now getting in a rundown lol
Well whatever I'm at work and will need to check out that replay later.
First hit and run batted in for Rooker.
Rookie Rooker Ribbie!
when he hits a HR do we announce "CASTLED!"??
112 mph according to canada. I'll take it
Jeffers pinch hit for Avila to lead off the inning. Jeffers caught the first game so is Avila the next addition to the IL?
As visiting team, are you in a different dugout?
10 pitches on the first batter? PoppenFresh is getting his Showtime.
20 games today - hasn't happened in 50 years.
There goes the NH.
and the lead.
Rooker chose poorly.
Dazzle says Avila has a sore back.
just hit a donger already, Josh.
Now maybe a Sanoball or a Cruz missile to seal the deal.
who catches with Jeffers out?
oh. La Tortuga!
LA TORTUGA SIGHTING!!!
Crax. Very disappointing inning.
Ugh. Really? Runner at 2nd to start the EIGHTH? Dumb, dumb, dumb.
It is extra innings.
I know. But it's a double-whammy of stupid 7-inning games AND the extras rule.
I think it’s practical more than stupid.
To expand on that—it’s a 14-inning day for the team so it’s arguably more important to finish extra innings more quickly than in a typical day with just one 9-inning game.
I also still think it’s a great tiebreaker for the regular season where the better team wins more often than the lesser team, we get to see interesting situational baseball compacted into fewer innings, and teams don’t wear through as many UCLs or rotator cuffs in the bullpen. In the post-season it would be a bad rule.
That turtle can fly.
Romo after that run was great:
He put an exclamation point on that.
I kind of like that the automatic runner on second base in extras means the catchers really have to block the ball the entire inning and it makes it riskier for pitchers to spike the ball in the dirt.
Yeah I have to admit that I'm fine with the rule for the regular season. Kind of like NHL. End regular season games at a decent time, playoffs can go on forever.
I suspect a lot of people have changed their minds on the baserunner in extra innings.
I have not. I still want more of them (runners, not extra innings).
Bizzaro game in which the Twins win in extras... in the 8th...and even though it's at home it wasn't a walk off
