  1. The Twins using the running game, with "Wheels" Cruz legging out an infield single and Kirilloff getting a hustle double.

  2. Don't like the pitching change. Berrios still looked sharp after that silly walk. If they were playing an outfielder in the outfield, he might have been out of the inning already.

    1. He fell behind Luplow before the groundout and Ramirez lined out. He fell behind Rosario and I thought the double was going farther than it did and then he left an 0-2 pitch up to Reyes. Certainly, the double probably should have been caught, but I wouldn't say he was still sharp. Robles got a quick out, so hopefully, they'll leave him in for the 7th.

  3. I don't know, but Cory and Kris made it sound like Rocco didn't really want to take Berrios out, but forgot it was the second trip to the mound. If so, that would be a pretty bad mistake for a manager to make.

    1. Agreed. Although, I don't ever recall Baldelli going out to the mound just to talk to the pitcher and not pulling him unless he went out there with a trainer.

  4. Our "defensive replacement" in left field has played all of 16 major league games in the outfield. He did play an additional 68 in the minors.

  5. So now our plan is to hold them in the ninth, then win in extra innings. What could go wrong?

  6. The Twins have now played five tenth innings. They have failed to score in four of them. I find that inexcusable.

  7. I don't mean to kick a guy when he's down, but Colome is simply not getting the job done right now. At some point, Rocco has to acknowledge that.
