Twins win a dramatic one to beat Detroit

Johan Santana was ace-like, throwing 7 strong innings, giving up just 4 hits with 3 runs. He walked 2 and struck out 10. Justin Morneau, though, was the hero of the day. He delivered a two-run homerun, his 30th of the year, in the top of the 8th to put the Twins ahead and put Santana in line for the win. Read the rest of this entry »

Twins even series against Detroit

Brad Radke had a better-than-quality start night last night, going 7 innings while giving up 9 hits and just 2 runs. Joe Mauer highlights the Twins’ offense, going 3-for-5 with a double and 2 RBIs. He raised his league-leading average to .367. Read the rest of this entry »

Clutch hitting allows Twins to win

It was 5-3, in favor of the Royals, heading into the top of the 9th. Their closer, Ambiorix Burgos, was brought in. His stats coming into the game: 51.2 IP, 31 ER, 10 HR, 27 BB, and 53 K. His stats after he was done pitching: 52.2 IP, 33 ER, 12 HR, 28 BB, and 56 K. Read the rest of this entry »

Twins win thanks to the Royals

Two errors, two wild pitches, and 8 walks from the Royals’ pitchers allowed the Twins to get an 8-2 victory tonight. Kind of how the first game against the Rangers went; Twins score a lot, opposing team doesn’t score much. We all know how that series ended. Read the rest of this entry »

Starting pitching fails, Twins lose second straight series

Sorry for the delay, the internet was bad again today. It doesn’t make me happy to report about games where the Twins flat out suck, so I’ll make today’s post short and simple. Read the rest of this entry »

Two games in one post

The internet has been extremely bad with the heat wave (the reason for lack of and late posts recently), so this is the second time I’m typing this post as the first one did not save.

I won’t dwell on Saturday night’s loss too much, because there’s a lot to cover with the win today. Brad Radke pitched just 3 innings on Sat., giving up 7 hits and 4 runs. The announcers were talking about how Brad said he isn’t feeling 100% because of his shoulder problem. Well, I hope they can get that fixed because if we make it to the playoffs, and don’t get another good starter by tomorrow afternoon, he’ll have to start at least once per series and he’ll need to be effective.

Twins tied with White Sox, big series ahead.

I think I have accurate stats to the right of the site now, I’ll check with my advanced stats and with the counter later to see if it’s working properly. Also, I put in a search bar above that so you can search for a specific word if you want (if you’re searching for articles on a certain player, clicking their name under the Categories feature is probably easier).
