2022 Game Log 37 – Twins at Oakland

Twins continue to beat up on the bad and ok teams, which is what a team needs to do in order be eligible for the playoffs. Hopefully the trend continues as the Twins head to game two against the 15-23 Oakland A's.

Dylan Bundy on the mound and he's fallen back to earth after winning his first three starts of the season (albeit with lots of run support). Last start was atrocious with Bundy giving up 9 earned runs in 3.2 innings to the Orioles. Yuck! James Kaprielian up for the A's and although he was on the losing side of a 1-0 game against the Twins ten days ago, he has not pitched well at The Coliseum.

Twins will have to do it without Byron Buxton again as we has another designated rest day.

First Pitch at 8:40p local time.

2022 Game Log 30: Astros at Twins

Woo boy! We have one of those future hall of fame pitchers vs. a young up and coming ace head-to-head tonight at Target Field. Reminds me of back in 2006 when Francisco Liarano faced Roger Clemens. Verlander v. Ryan tonight and check out these stats:

Should be a humdinger and Byron Buxton should be back in the line up. First pitch at 6:40p and looks like a gorgeous night for baseball.
