MIN 6, DET 1: Stewart Impresses, Rosario Exits Due to Injury

Kohl Stewart not only had his best outing so far with the Twins, but one of the better performances of any Twins rookie pitcher this season. Over his six innings of work, Stewart only gave up an unearned run on three hits and three walks. He recorded five strikeouts.

Eddie Rosario was forced to leave this game after aggravating the quad injury he suffered in late August.

As all-time Minnesota Twins great Joe Mauer signals that his playing career may be reaching its end, many of us are savoring what could be the final chance to watch him on the field.

2018 Killebrew Award Winner - Jake Reed (Rochester Red Wings)

Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew is generally considered the greatest Twins player in their 58-year history in Minnesota. He was an imposing figure on the field, capable of altering a game with one swing of his mighty bat. Off the field, Killebrew was said to be one of the most genuinely compassionate men, respectful and helpful.

Following the Hall of Famer’s death in 2011, the Twins announced the initiation of the Harmon Killebrew Award for Community Service. One player from each of the four Twins full-season affiliates would be presented with the award in recognition of their work in their community.

Over the coming days, we’ll share with you the four 2018 recipients of the Harmon Killebrew Award for Community Service.

KC 10, MIN 3: It’s a Hard Road

The road woes continued for the Twins Saturday night as they stumbled through a sloppy game and took a beating from the Royals. The Twins are 43-31 in home games this season, but this loss dropped their road record to 24-50. They’re also now 4-10 so far in September.

Ballpark Review: Cleveland's Progressive Field

Cleveland's Progressive Field opened in 1994, one of the first wave of new ballparks in MLB, and fueled a dynasty that dominated the AL Central throughout the 90s. The only time I'd visited was shortly thereafter, so I'm way past due to see it again. I found a great park, especially impressive given its age. Want to visit with me? Great. Let's see what we find

KC 8, MIN 4: OH THE HUMANITY!!!

Trevor Hildenberger had a disaster of a game Friday night in Kansas City. He was entrusted to protect a one-run lead in the ninth, but ended up giving up four hits, including a walk-off grand slam to Salvador Perez.

KC 6, MIN 4: Coming Down is the Hardest Thing

What a high the Twins were on. They beat up on the Yankees 10-5 Tuesday night thanks to a Joe Mauer grand slam, then bested them again Wednesday night 3-1 behind a near no-hit effort from Jake Oddorizzi in what may have been their best-played game all season.

Heading to Kansas City was going to be a piece of cake, right? Wrong. Let’s just say this one will not be mentioned among their better performances of the season.

Learning Leadership from Chris Gimenez

The Minnesota Twins have watched their 2018 season of promise turn towards a different direction, and now ramble on towards a close. Over the course of the year adversity has been a common theme, and in dealing with it, a monumental struggle. When building out a 25-man roster talent obviously reigns supreme, but the addition of personalities able to influence the human element in the optimal way is of the utmost importance as well.
