Angels 4, Twins 2: Ugh.

Angels 4, Twins 2: Ugh.

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports Byron Buxton homers to put the Twins in front early, but that would be all they would get. I’m sure all of us were hoping that the Twins would have a strong finish to the series after Saturday night’s extra innings debacle. At least early on, it seemed like that might be the case. Byron Buxton launched his 28th homer of the season in the first inning to put the Twins up 2-0. Chris Archer would hold the Angels off the scoreboard until the bottom of the 3rd. That was when Luis Rengifo doubled to left and brought home David Fletcher...

Game 113: Twins @ Angels

Game 113: Twins @ Angels

Kiyoshi Mio-USA TODAY Sports The Twins look to bounce back after a crushing loss last night in Anaheim FIRST PITCH: 3:10pmCDT TV: Bally Sports North RADIO: WCCO, TIBN Happy Sunday! This afternoon, the Twins look to take 2 out of 3 against the Angels in Anaheim and put last night’s heartbreaker behind them. To do this, they’ll more than likely need a strong start from Chris Archer (2-5, 4.02ERA), and a better bullpen performance than last night. Not leaving 14 runners on base will help too! The Halos will counter with Tucker Davidson (1-3, 7.91ERA). From his...

Game 108: Blue Jays @ Twins

Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports The Twins aim to take 3 of 4 from Toronto and continue their post-deadline success. FIRST PITCH: 1:10pmCT TV: Bally Sports North RADIO: WCCO, TIBN KNOW THINE ENEMY: Bluebird Banter Happy Sunday, Twins Territory! Today, the Twins will aim to pick up a second straight series win, and also the second series win of the year over the Toronto Blue Jays. The Twins will hand the ball to Chris Archer (2-5, 4.05ERA) and hope that they can get a little more length out of him this time around. The Jays will counter with Kevin Gausman (8-8,...

Tigers 5, Twins 3: Bullpen falters late, offense can’t get anything going

Tigers 5, Twins 3: Bullpen falters late, offense can’t get anything going

At least Contreras got his first career homer! | Jordan Johnson-USA TODAY Sports The Twins had a lead going into the 7th inning but could not hold it. The Twins got on the board first with Mark Contreras’s first homer, a solo shot to right field in the the 3rd inning. Later in that same inning Nick Gordon had the bases loaded with 1 out and nearly hit a grand slam, but it was ruled a foul ball, just wide of the pole. Instead, we had to settle for a sacrifice fly to make it a 2-0 game. Fast forward to the 5th inning, Chris Archer was throwing a shutout to this...

Game XCIX: Twins @ Padres

Do you feel like... indulging? | Photo by Bob Riha, Jr./ In a place still called Petco, by the way. That company hasn't gone kaput yet. Time: 8:40 Central Weather: Calm, partly cloudy, 68° at first pitch (spooky ghost pirate fog after 11 PM) Opponent’s SB site: Gaslamp Ball TV: BSN. Radio: Provus won’t be in San Diego. Maybe he’s chicken. Since May 24, the Twins are 25-30. They’ll try to get better tonight, against 29-year-old lefty Blake Snell. Part of the endless Tampa pitching factory (and a #2 starter behind Chris Archer as recently as 2018), he was part...

Brewers 10, Twins 4: Border Battered

Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports Rowdy, Brewers batter Twins’ pitching Chris Archer gave up a three-run home run to Rowdy Tellez in the first inning, and with Corbin Burnes on the mound for the Brewers, I thought the game might be over. Turns out, I was wrong, as the Twins struck back against the Brewer’s ace of aces, getting three of their own in the top of the second on a Jose Miranda home run, doubles by Kyle Garlick and Nick Gordon, and a single by Gary Sanchez. Side note: Jose Miranda’s ownage index against All-Star Brewers pitchers is off the charts....

White Sox 11, Twins 0: No.

White Sox 11, Twins 0: No.

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports The Twins only allowed runs in three innings in this game, but they allowed a lot of them! If you were hoping for a good baseball game today, it looked like you were going to get your wish for the first few innings. Chris Archer and Dylan Cease were both absolutely dealing early on. Archer got the first two outs on two pitches in the top of the 5th, and it looked like he was going to get through 5 scoreless innings with the game tied at zero. After that second out in the 5th inning, Chris Archer proceeded to allow a walk, two singles,...
