TWINS 2020 SEASON SIMULATION


Game 11, 4-6-20
This is a huge series early in the season as the undefeated Cleveland Indians are traveling to Minneapolis to face the 2nd place Twins who are 4 games back. This is the Twins chance to make back some games. Hopefully Cleveland's 10-0 start is due to an easy schedule. The match pits Odorizzi up against Emmanuel Clase. Below we will highlight the scoring innings.
  • Bottom of the 2nd - Sano walked, Buxton launched one to left center scoring the "speedy" Sano from 1st. Kepler walked and then Arraez hit one deep into the hole at 2nd and getting by Mike Freeman scoring Buxton. Twins up 2-0
  • Bottom of the 3rd - Hunter Wood came in relieving Clase at the start of the half inning. Tough outing for Clase. The pitching change didn't help much. Cruz lead off the inning with a single, and Donaldson pushed him to third due to an error by Carlos Santana. Sano grounded out but knocked in Cruz. Twins 3-0
  • Top of the 6th - Odorizzi finally falters just a little bit. Santana walked to start the inning, followed by a Roberto Perez single moving Santana to third. Odorizzi struck out Puig. Then Cesar Hernandez singled scoring Santana. From there, Odorizzi got out of the jam getting the final 2 outs. Twins 3-1
  • Bottom of the 6th - Rosario wasn't going to let the Indians get closer, and led off the inning with a HR to right field. Twins 4-1
  • Top of the 7th - Odorizzi gave up a double to Freeman and then a walk (64 Game score, quality start), and Sergio Romo came in to get the last out of the inning, no runs scored. Twins 4-1
  • Bottom of the 7th - Nick Wittgren relieved Wood. Once again the Twins immediately capitalized. Polanco doubled deep to right, just missing a Home Run, Cruz walked and then Sano ended his nice game with a 2 RBI triple. Twins 6-1
  • Top of the 9th - Baldelli kept Romo in the game to keep fresh arms. Ramirez singled. He struck out Freeman. Lindor got a single moving Ramirez to second. But Romo got a hot Carlos Santana to ground out with a game ending double play. Odorizzi gets the win (2-0). Romo gets the junk save. Cleveland gets their first loss of the season by way of the TWINS!
Twins win 6-1

Not much to say other than a PERFECT GAME. Madison Bumgarner and Arizona up against Bumgarner's former team, San Fran. 27 up, 27 down with 12 Ks. You may say, oh this simulation pushes these type of results. I have played dynasty league baseball for 25 years be it rolling dice, the pc cd-rom sim, to the now online sim...I have easily played over 1,000 games of this, and have NEVER seen a perfect game until this one. I've only seen a handful of no-hitters. This is super rare. I posted on the game's FB page, and they re-posted it because it is so rare. Pretty awesome. Link to see the box score and recap:

Very fun. And very much appreciated! Efforts like this, though fantasy, still fill a baseball entertainment void. Thanks!

Great game! keep up the great work! Hopefully we can sweep them! Emmanuel Clase` will be a great starter some day but right now should only be limited to BP. Fortunate for Twins. Thanks for the stats!

Thanks DocBauer.  Yup, I thought doing a daily sim would bring a tiny bit of joy with no sports going on.  It's helping me out a little bit, hopefully a few others as well.

Unfortunately no sweep.  Let's see if we can take the series.  Thanks for the stats suggestion!
