Minnesota Twins talk

All things relating to the Minnesota Twins

Pitchers from the Royals are really bad, allowing Twins to win 3rd straight

The Royals’ pitching staff has walked 34 batters in 3 games against the Twins. Only 3 are intentional. I’m checking into whether or not there is a record for most walks given up in a 4 game series.

Royals pitchers tonight combined for: 9 IP, 12 hits, 14 runs (13 earned),  14 walks, and just 3 strikeouts.

Twins pitchers tonight combined for: 9 IP, 11 hits, 3 runs (all earned), 1 walk, 5 strikeouts.

I can’t really praise the Twins hitters too much if the Royals pitchers suck that much. Although, my boy Justin Morneau hit his 29th homerun of the year. A 3-run shot to give him 97 RBIs this season.

Nick Punto went 0-for-1, but had 3 RBI. You won’t see that very often.

9 of the Twins’ runs came with 2 outs. They continue to smash it with the inning on the line, and that’s pretty sweet. I would assume that teams get…maybe a bit overconfident with 2 outs, and they slip a little and they can’t do that against the Twins.

Tomorrow’s probable starter is Mike Smith, with a record of 0-0 and an ERA of -.–. Remember, the game is at 1:10 in the afternoon, so be sure to watch it.
