Twins 9, Cubs 5: I hope you like offense

Jon Durr-USA TODAY Sports The Twins fell behind early, but the offense came alive later in the game to get them the win. In the first, the Twins jumped out to an early 2-0 lead. The first run scored on a strikeout and throwing error that allowed Luis Arraez to score from 3rd. Then Josh Donaldson hit a sacrifice fly RBI.

Twins 3, Tigers 2: A new and exciting version of the Alex Colome Experience

Photo by David Berding/ The eight innings leading up to today’s ACE were largely uneventful. The scoring was confined to three half-innings. The Twins scored all three of their runs in the top of the fourth. Byron Buxton hit a one-out double to left field, and then the red-hot Jorge Polanco collected his 77th RBI by singling Buck home. With Polanco on the pond, Josh Donaldson wrapped up the Twins’ scoring, with a massive home run. The end.

Twins 9, Red Sox 6 (10 innings): A roller coaster that finally ends on a high note

Josh Donaldson did the things we all wish he’d been doing in April and May. | Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports Colomé collapses, but Donaldson and Cave come through in extras From time to time this season, yours truly has opened one of these game recaps by stating that the individual game we’d just witnessed was essentially a microcosm of the season.
