Week in Review: Breaking Good

A disappointing first half ended on a high note, with Sunday's walk-off grand slam capping a 9-2 home stand to propel Minnesota into the All-Star break with some serious good vibes.

In the wake of a crushing 1-8 road trip, the Twins did what they needed to do, taking all three series at Target Field to move back within six games of .500 and eight games of the division lead.

MLB Stadium Tour: San Diego's Petco Park

It's been 15 years or so since I visited Petco Park, and my impression at the time was was it was one of the better new ballparks. That was also long before Target Field, so my wife and I revisited it Sunday, to see if we were still as impressed.

We were, and here is the tweet thread detailing our findings.....

Twins Minor League Report (7/15): Lewis Collects Four Hits, Kirilloff Shines in Futures Game

Prospects took center stage on Sunday with the MLB’s Future Game being played to kick off this week’s All-Star festivities. The U.S. Future’s Team outlasted the World Future’s Team by a final score of 10-6. Two of Minnesota’s top-20 prospects participated in the game. Alex Kirilloff started the game and batted sixth for the US squad. He went 2-for-2 and scored a run.

Lewis Thorpe didn’t fare so well on the mound for the World squad. He allowed four earned runs on three hits (two home runs), while only collecting two outs. He struck out one and walked one. Let’s see how the other members of the organization did on Sunday.

MIN 11, TB 7: Dozier Grand Slam Ends Wild Game, First Half

There was an entire season’s worth of moments in just this one game Sunday afternoon at Target Field. A run scored on a balk, there were two instances in which the benches cleared, the lead changed hands multiple times late and Brian Dozier hit a walk-off grand slam in extra innings.

How’s that for a way to finish the first half?

TB 19, MIN 6: This Never Happened

You ever have a day so bad you’d just like to permanently erase it from your memory?

Saturday’s game off to a great start. Jose Berrios had a no-hitter going through three innings. Even when he slipped, the bats stormed back. Minnesota held a 6-4 advantage after six innings.

Then things really went sour.

MIN 11, TB 8: Twins Get a Scare on Friday the 13th, Prevail over Pesky Rays

The Twins aren’t dead yet, but they’ve given themselves very little room for error. They can’t afford to do things like, for example, blow seven-run leads. Well, it’s a good thing they didn’t do exactly that Friday, but things were pretty hairy there for a second.

Twins Minor League Report (7/13): Multi-Hit Games Everywhere (Lewis Promoted)

The Twins Daily Midseason Twins Top 50 Prospect series is complete. Early on Friday, the Top 5 prospects were posted, an exciting group, to be sure. You will notice that our Prospect Summary list has been updated. But, on the field, this was a great night for a lot of hitters. Ten hitters had three hits. There were homers. And there were a couple of strong pitching performances too.

2018 Twins Midseason Top Prospect List: 1-5

Over the past two weeks, we have been counting down our Top 40 Midseason Minnesota Twins Prospect Rankings. There are many different types of prospects. There are young guys with high ceilings with a long ways to get to the big leagues. There are solid prospects who are close to being able to contribute in the big leagues who may not have high ceilings, but they have a high likelihood of reaching the big leagues.

Today, we conclude the series by looking at our choices for the Top 5 Minnesota Twins Prospects and it is a good combination of those things. There is a pitcher who could be in the big leagues for a long time as a mid-rotation starter, debuting soon. There is a young, potential big league shortstop who is one stop from the big leagues but still has question marks surrounding him. There is a very young pitcher with upside as high as we’ve seen in the Twins system in a long time. And there are two really young hitters with huge upsides who are several steps from the big leagues and could still get there relatively quickly.

MIN 5, TB 1: Who’s the Snub?

Tampa Bay’s Blake Snell was considered one of the bigger All-Star snubs this season. Well, if I didn’t know any better, I’d have definitely guessed Kyle Gibson was the starting pitcher in Thursday night’s matchup who was among the best pitchers in the American League this season who was snubbed for the All-Star Game.

The Twins got to Snell, knocking him out after just three innings, while Gibby was dynamite, completing eight frames.
