Final week of the season and the Twins start a two-gamer against the Gardy-less Tigers #pouroneoutforGardy.
No announced starter for the Twins this morning but the Tigers trot out Tarik Skubai, who has won and lost a game against the Twins this year.
UPDATE: It's Homer Bailey!!!! Who even remembers he was on the team?
Nelson Cruz appears to still be nursing a sore knee so we probably won't see him today.
There's still a chance for the Twins to win the Central so I'd hope they take these last few games seriously, especially against a team that definitely is looking forward to wrapping up and going home.
September mid-week game so 6:40p start.
Do the Twins stay at the same hotel?
Yesterday I couldn’t watch the game, and the Twins finally took one from Chicago. Today I can’t watch either, so I’m expecting good things.
The Twins play an early “getaway game” time today, apparently to give themselves 30 hours to get to the north side tomorrow. Our wonderful friend Kenta Maeda faces the as-yet unimpressive Reynaldo Lopez in the finale. Perhaps most importantly, late last night, I found out I was on Sony’s preferred list to preorder a PS5 from them directly and not deal with a retailer. Go Twins!
So that was frustrating. Twins leave 432,819 runners on base last night and couldn't close out on a White Sox team that has beat up on the Tigers and Royals but basically .500 against everyone else.
Dobnak on the mound for the Twins who had a really bad 3rd inning a week ago against the Cardinals. Someone called Dane Dunning pitching for the Sox.
First pitch at 7:10 and would be nice if the Twins could rally and cruise to the Division championship these last 11 games.
7pm Saturday start times are weird. Anyway in progress.
rain delayed but In progress
Sorry, gang, Labor Dayin' it up over here so I don't have a lot of time for this. Obviously, I want the Twins to win today, but Plouffe(!) with a Dobnak beard would be pretty sweet.
Hope you all are keeping it low and lazy!
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.
We ride into Ohio behind King Kenta* who is coming off perhaps the best performance of his career. He'll face off against Civale, who like any member of the Cleveland pitching staff, is "pretty good".
The Twins are only 1.5 games ahead of the Spiders, so this three game series will be an important one.
(*everybody wanna cut the legs off him.)
