2024 Game Log 54 – Royals at Twins (and Wolves Game Log)

Game 54 meaning, the Twins are 1/3 through their 2024 MLB season. I guess we'd take 5 games over .500 at this point but it's been a roller coaster to get there with both winning and losing streaks dominating the season. Game two of a four game series and it really feels like the Twins need to win three of four to keep pace.

Cole Ragans on the mound for the Royals and he's a big strikeout guy, so I get nervous with Twins bats being shut down. Simeon Woods Richardson for the Twins and he's buttressed the bottom of the Twins starters and one of the reasons Twins fans haven't been as nervous about the pitching staff as it was coming into the season. Should be a fun game

Timberwolves-Mavs start about an hour after Twins game starts so we can use this post as a basketball game log as well.

First Pitch: 6:40

Tip Off: 7:30

2022 Game Log 11 – Twins at Royals

Ten games down in the 2022 season so we can play a little bit of "having fun with SSS." After 10 games...

Projected record: 65-97
Average margin of Twins win: 4.75
Average margin of Twins loss: 4.16
Projected Byron Buxton games missed: 48 games
Nick Gordon will finish with a higher OPS than Miguel Sano
Projected Miguel hits: 32, 16 of them HRs.

Whew, let's hope in 20 games, some of these trends get turned around.

Chris Archer vs. Carlos Hernandez.

First Pitch at 7:10, just 20 minutes before the Wolves-Griz tilt.
