Git ‘Er Done
It wasn’t pretty, but the Twins were able to “git ‘er done” this weekend against the Indians. It took us over 18 innings to get the first run of the series, and we scored in only two innings the entire series, but still managed to take the series thanks to some great starting pitching
Now, the last series against the White Sox looms at the Cell starting Tuesday. We can effectively put them away by winning the series, or they (a very streaky team to begin with) can gain momentum.
-Unbelievable…we’re only two games behind the Yankees for best record in the American League, and thus locking up home field advantage for the playoffs. With the amount of times the Yanks and Rays still play each other down the stretch, if the Twins keep putting up “W’s” we could sneak through as the #1 seed!
Preview (85-58, 1st, 6.0 GA CWS): Francisco Liriano (13-7, 3.24) vs. John Danks (13-10, 3.54).
