Twins 6, Rockies 0: Somehow, Buxton returned

Photo by Stephen Maturen/ Byron rejoins the lineup, and the entire team kicks it into gear. Byron Buxton didn’t one-hit the Colorado Rockies, but he has proven time and time again that the team is simply different when he is in the game. He reminded a national audience early — after Luis Arraez (current leader in the American League batting championship) doubled into left field to open the first. Buxton roped a liner into the gap; it would chase all the way to the wall, and provide the star center fielder with his first triple of the season. Needless to say, it...

First Pitch: 6:15 pm CDT TV: FOX / ~ / Radio: TIBN The Twins haven’t won back-to-back games since June 11th; they’ve lost consecutive games once since June 2nd. However, after losing three of their last four, including a disappointing series loss to the Cleveland Guardians, you would think that Minnesota had plummeted, somehow, into sixth place in a five-team division. The real truth is still pretty promising: COURTESY: Google The White Sox continue to tread water, leaving a bit...

Minnesota Twins: 4 Twins who should be ditched by the All-Star Break

The Minnesota Twins currently sit tied with the Cleveland Guardians for first place in the American League Central, a spot that very few pundits expected either team to be in as June came to an end. Both teams have benefited from an easy schedule, but both teams have also proven their mettle against stronger teams […] Minnesota Twins: 4 Twins who should be ditched by the All-Star Break - Pucketts Pond - Pucketts Pond - Minnesota Twins News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Rockies 1, Twins 0: 137 minutes you may have missed

This is a difficult expression to read. | Photo by Stephen Maturen/ The Twins are tied for baseball’s shutout lead this year, not in the way that you want. A pitching duel, kinda, more a dead bat duel, and the Purple Ones defeat the home state of the Purple One. Inning-by-inning notes: 1: Provus says “we’ve been having glorious weather all week.” Yeah, if you’re lake algae. For the rest of us it’s been hot as crapola. Dylan Bundy sails right through his half of the inning, and the Twins get on and get out before I can even finish my opening-game beer. This...

Twins 1, Guardians 0: I guess that works!

Photo by Stephen Maturen/ Smeltzer brings the Twins back on top. After losing 6 to 5 (in extras) and 11 to 10 (blowing it in the 9th) the Twins decided to just be cool guys playing normal baseball and score one entire run and win against the team that just knocked them out of 1st place in their division. Okay, cool. Devin Smeltzer extracted gold on the diamond, pitching 6 innings of shut-out ball, giving up only 3 hits while striking out 3 and walking absolutely no one. I can’t say enough good things about Smeltzer, there will be no puns about pungent aromas tonight....
